Sorkin spellbinds again with this human look at a tumultuous time, and does a throwback to his early days of "A Few Good Men" with this courtroom drama. An absolutely amazing cast, with great performances, and Sorkin's writing keeps you glued to the film. Perfect pacing, wonderful messages that, yes, are just (it not more) as relevant today.
I like the feeling of watching an instant classic. Not very often you get to experience that.
Haven't seen credits like that since the 90s though. Were missing only the "and introducing x as y" part.
It was fine but... Wow! That ending came straight out of a 90’s movie. I know they moved that moment to the end of the trial for dramatic purposes but, why with that approach instead of something more subdued? The tone went from To Kill a Mockingbird to the ending of Big Daddy in a second. The only thing missing was a narration saying: “And that was the summer when we were part of the Trial of the Chicago 7”. As I said, the rest is fine. Sorkin is a functional director for better or worse.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
