[6.50/10] The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

Quick Review: The back-and-forth plot structure is busy and uneven, often choosing to depict instead of display the events, there are far too many characters involved, and the non-stop talking is overwhelming at times, but Aaron Sorkin's fact-based courtroom drama still engages with a timely topic, sharp dialogues with depth, wit, and humor, silky late 60s look, and terrific cast that drives the whole movie from the riveting set-up to the poignant ending.

Prepare for a lot of talking - check.
