November Movie:  The Trial of the Chicago 7 (Netflix) 

Moderator: Jim Wolfson

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a 2020 American historical legal drama.  The film is based on the infamous 1969 trial of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy and more, arising from the counter cultural protests in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation about mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government.

The film follows the Chicago Seven, a group of anti–Vietnam War protesters charged with conspiracy and crossing state lines with the intention of inciting riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. It features an ensemble cast that includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, Daniel Flaherty, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Keaton, Frank Langella, John Carroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Noah Robbins, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, and Jeremy Strong.

RSVP to Malcolm Roberts by December 10 for your Zoom invitation hosted by Malcolm Roberts. You will receive an invitation by December 13 along with discussion questions from Jim Wolfson to stimulate your thinking about the film.

The Film Forum is open to ALL Temple Sinai members and their significant others.

Be sure to watch the film first - it's FREE on Netflix.  See you at the Movies!
