Movie Description:
In Chicago 1968, the Democratic Pary Convention was met with protests from activists like the moderate Students for a Democratic Society led by Tom Hayden and the militant Yippies led by Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin, which led to violent confrontations with the local authorities. As a result, seven of the accused ringleaders are arraigned on charges like Conspiracy by the hostile Nixon administration, including Bobby Seale of the Black Panthers who was not involved in the incident. What follows is an unfair trial presided by the belligerent Judge Hoffman (No relation) and prosecuted by a reluctant but duty-bound Richard Schultz. As their pro bono lawyers face such odds, Hayden and his fellows are frustrated by the Yippies' outrageous antics undermining their defense in defiance of the system even while Seale is denied a chance to defend himself his way. Along the way, the Chicago 7 clash in their political philosophies even as they learn they need each other in this fight.

    Lovely Sandy would seem to have it all -- a burgeoning career, a loving young son, and a husband, James who makes more than she does. But he has emotionally withdrawn from her in the months following a tragic automobile accident in which their daughter was killed. His reticence troubles her, who seems helpless to do anything about it. Then one day her husband comes home a changed man -- romantic, affectionate, and eager to talk about hers possible transfer to New York City. There's only one problem: Edward is chained to a chair in a suburban basement, held hostage by gun-toting tough gal, Beth. So who is that man who looks like Edward making love with Sandy?

The Chi 7 deserves a 10

I think Sorkin exercised more discipline than usual in putting this film together. The script was clear, literate, and gave the right tone to each role. The editing also was excellent in bringing in flashback events at the right time during the trial, which kept the pace going forward while providing key background details. He kept the drama high, even though the history and conclusion is well known, by leaving out some of the intermediate details. He trusted his audience at just the right times without compromising the story.

Can't say enough about the entire cast. Brilliant job from the seasoned veterans down to relative newbies. SBC was beyond great as Abbie Hoffman, but the entire cast worked magic together.

Must see; this is one for the ages.


There is not so many movies that will keep you interested,with hardly no violence,sex scenes & disturbing behaviour.This does ,Great film actually probably the best film, I have seen all year. RESPECT!

Whole world should be watching!

Entertaining, albeit in the typical relentless quippy Aron Sorkin fashion, the occasional light touches doesn't hinder from the movie delivering on the stakes of the situation, expressing how timeless the subject matter really is.

Sacha Baron Cohen's accent can be jarring at first, but it takes a minute to get used to it. The rest of the cast do an admirable job with Yahya Abdul Mateen being the standout (even in a somewhat limited role by design). The strong cameo performance near the tail end also boosts the performance pedigree.

Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it, and this movie does a fine job as a reminder of that.
