“THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 slams the gavel down with authority to remind that ‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’ Aaron Sorkin’s passionate look back at the 1968 Democratic National Convention brilliantly weaves a complex narrative founded in protests, politics and posturing into an essential tale for our times. His soaring words and deft direction are super-charged by an all-star ensemble, and the result is an exhilarating, thrill-ride through the halls of American history.” -The American Film Institute
