The Trial of the Chicago 7 ★★★★


Perhaps it is just a soft spot for Aaron Sorkin’s writing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I knew nothing about the actual events that inspired the film going in so it is impossible for me to be critical of how the story was interpreted and while it might falter in this aspect it didn’t affect my viewing experience. 

I liked the setting of the story and all of the actors involved and when pared with a fast paced script containing snappy dialogue it never comes across as boring. 

I could imagine reading up on story before my next viewing even though I am scared that it could ruin the film.
