Description

What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen), Jerry Rubin (Jeremy Strong), Tom Hayden (Eddie Redmayne), and Bobby Seale (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II)—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history. Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a court-room drama at its finest, weaving an equal-parts inspiring and infuriating that shocks to the core.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is nominated for 6 Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best Cinematography, and Best Film Editing.
