“The whole world is watching.” 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, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history. Written and directed by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin (screenwriter of Molly’s Game, The Social Network and A Few Good Men), the political drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Michael Keaton, John Carroll Lynch and Alex Sharp. Nominated for 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Cohen) and Best Original Screenplay!
