It’s the 51st anniversary of the verdict of what has now become known as the trial of the Chicago 7. The movie first premiered back in October 2020 on Netflix. More buzz has been generated for the film with its recent Golden Globe nominations (5) including best motion picture for a drama and best screenplay. And beyond all that, comes some good news!

The historical drama, based on true events, follows the Vietnam War protestors accused of inciting riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
The ensemble cast of 7 are some major players. Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman, Jeremy Strong as Jerry Rubin, John Carroll Lynch as David Dellinger, Eddie Redmayne as Tom Hayden, Alex Sharp as Reenie Davis, Daniel Flaherty as John Froines and Noah Robbins as Lee Weiner.
In a statement for Netflix, director Aaron Sorkin talking about the nature of the real life events and his decision to make it open for all of the public to see free of charge.
“When we began shooting last winter, we knew the story we were telling was not only an important chapter of American history, but was plenty relevant to current events. We certainly didn’t need it to get more relevant, but it did. To commemorate the anniversary of the verdict in this historic trial, we’ve made the film available on YouTube for 48 hours starting Friday, February 19th at 12:00am PT, remembering the real patriots who inspired a generation – actually, generations – to take to the streets and uphold the foundations of our US Constitution, along with the courageous voices that continue to do so today. It’s our honor to share their story with the world. “
