The Trial of the Chicago 7 Netflix Movie Review 2021 | Oye Cinema Club

By Oye Dimelo Network •  Updated: 06/22/21 •  3 min read

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a riveting, informative documentary that follows the trial of seven individuals accused of conspiring to incite riots and destroy government property. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2017, receiving great reviews from critics. Based on my personal experience watching this film, I would recommend it to anyone who wants an inside look into one of America’s most pivotal moments. 

The trial was originally designed as a way for the state to suppress civil unrest in response to President Nixon’s expansion of the Vietnam War into Cambodia-Laos. The defendants were charged with conspiracy and inciting riot by allegedly participating in anti-war rallies led by Rennie Davis during May 1968 which caused violence and destruction across Chicago.

Oye Cinema Club’s Review of the movie “The Trial” by Aaron Sorkin. I am not sure how to summarize this movie other than, it is a masterpiece in its own right and should be watched for all those who care about history, politics, or just want an edge-of-your-seat narrative with a lot of interesting twists. The trial was set on what happened at the 1968 Democratic National Convention when violence broke out among protesters outside over conflictions between civil rights activists and delegates inside regarding the Vietnam War policy.

It stars Eddie Redmayne as James Naughton, Alex Sharp as David Dellinger
