The Trial of the Chicago 7 ★★★

Easy to see why Spielberg was interested in the story way back in 2007. It's the kind of project that's tailor-made for him, and very reminiscent of what he went on to do with LINCOLN, BRIDGE OF SPIES, and THE POST. As it is now, it's perfectly fine - definitely a step-up from MOLLY'S GAME - pretty didactic and grandstanding but not as saccharine as it could've been (minus that final scene though). Kinda wish it was as radical and flamboyant as its subjects - this is material that 90s era Oliver Stone would've had a field day with - but it's an efficiently put together courtroom drama.

MVP: Jeremy Strong
Weak Link: Eddie Redmayne (that accent - woof. Plus a couple spots of really rough ADR)
