Movie Thoughts: The Trial of the Chicago 7
First movie I watched this year where I thought, “I wish I would’ve seen this in a theater.”
I remember reading about this back in the day when Spielberg was supposed to direct it and Will Smith was playing Bobby Seale and Jeff Daniels was David Dellinger.
Sorkin’s style grates occasionally but overall it flows. Some of it almost borders on propaganda, some of it is really self-indulgent. But the movie’s failings never overshadow its successes.
