screenqueens’s review published on Letterboxd:
But ultimately, the film’s middling politics shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise. Sorkin, the creator of The West Wing, has always been a fan of the status quo and the functions of good governance. More insidiously, one could argue that The Trial of the Chicago 7 is merely promoting what he has always believed to be true — that change is necessitated by the checks and balances of a system that fulfils its function of serving the few in power while oppressing the many.
