Netflix is commemorating the 51st anniversary of the verdict in the real trial with a free viewing on their Youtube channel. The 2020 Aaron Sorkin-directed film is a dramatized telling of the true story of how seven men associated with protesting the 1968 Democratic National Convention were put on trial after the peaceful protests escalated into full-blown violence.
Today and tomorrow only. If you're interested...

I watched and it does have left wing lean. I though it was interesting and a better use of 1.5 hours than most crap on TV these days. There was a lot of shit going on in that time period and it's hard to figure out who the good guys and bad guys are. I though it more depicted the corruption in Chicago, which was rampant in that ear. I lived there during these times and what we know now is completely different than the media reported. Hmm that sound familiar.



Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.
