The Trial of the Chicago 7 is based on a real-life trial that began on September 24, 1969.

Defendants David Dellinger, Rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, John Froines, and Lee Weiner stood before Judge Julius Hoffman as they were accused of conspiring to incite a riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

The story of the Chicago 7 has the potential to strike an emotional chord with audiences today, as we are in a time of protests and a cry for change.

Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe award winner Aaron Sorkin directs this film and says that the film could not get more relevant than it is today. Sorkin states how the creators of The Trial of the Chicago 7 believed that this film was relevant, while it was shooting back in the Winter of 2019, but now with the country divided and protests breaking out across America, this film is as relatable as it could ever be.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 premieres October 16th, only on Netflix.
