THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 (Internet Release USA 2020)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Trial of the Chicago 7—one of the WOW! watches—accesses the talents of Eddie Redmayne, Sasha Baron Cohen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, John Carroll Lynch, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, and Michael Keaton to inform and retell the court trial of the 7 persons thought to be responsible for the disruption of the 1968 Democratic Convention as protestors against the Vietnam War. This legal drama is well portrayed and details court events. Great work for all involved.
