The Trial of The Chicago 7 Movie: 13 Powerful Aaron Sorkin Quotes From Netflix Film That Will Hit You Hard, Whether You Are American or Indian! (View Pics)

One of the best films of the year came out last week on Netflix. Aaron Sorkin, whose penmanship gave us masterpieces like The West Wing and The Social Network, writes and directs The Trial of The Chicago 7. The movie is based on the real-life controversial judicial proceedings against seven anti-Vietnam war activists accused of inciting riots in Chicago in 1968 by Richard Nixon government. The Trial of The Chicago 7 has an ensemble cast featuring Frank Langella (Judge Julius Hoffman), Eddie Redmayne (Tom Hayden), Sacha Baron Cohen (Abbie Hoffman), Mark Rylance (William Kunstler), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Bobby Seale), Jeremy Strong (Jerry Rubin), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Richard Schultz), Alex Sharp (Rennie Davis), Daniel Flaherty (John Froines), Noah Robbins (Lee Weiner), and Michael Keaton (Ramsey Clark). The Trial of The Chicago 7 Movie Review: Sacha Baron Cohen, Mark Rylance Steal The Show in Aaron Sorkin’s Powerful Courtroom Drama.

While The Trial of The Chicago 7 is about a real trial that happened in the ’60s, you can draw parallels to what is happening around you right now. If you follow news, you can relate to the proceedings of the film – of the idea of a tyrannical government trying to suppress the voice of reasoning and peace – in a Trump-administered America. Or how closer home, the Indian government is trying to handle the Bhima-Koregaon incident or the Delhi anti-CAA riots.

This is made even more relatable by Sorkin’s sharp lines, especially those uttered by a scene-stealing Sacha Baron Cohen’s tragic hippie activist Abbie Hoffman. Let’s look at the 13 most powerful quotes from the film.
