  1. The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)
    Dir. Aaron Sorkin

    This based on an actual trial of seven people, five leaders of groups protesting the Vietnam War. I can’t remember now, but I believe the U.S. government charged them with inciting violence.

    Sorkin’s writing is solid, throughout. If you liked his writing in The West Wing and A Few Good Men, you’ll like the dialogue in this. It’s not outstanding, in my opinion, but good.

    It does provide an interesting frame for the the January 6 ransacking of the Capitol.
