Netflix this week (October 11-17) plans to add 23 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 14 originals.
The new titles will include The Trial of the Chicago 7 (pictured above), a Netflix original dramatic film about the seven anti-war activists who were tried in 1969 for conspiracy to riot during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. The cast includes Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) as Abbie Hoffman and Jeremy Strong (Succession) as Jerry Rubin.
The film, which premiered in select theaters last month, is regarded as an Oscar candidate when next year’s awards are announced. Aaron Sorkin, who penned the multi award-winning The Social Network, directed The Trial of the Chicago 7 as well as wrote it.
Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 92 out of a possible 100, based on 104 reviews.
“An actors’ showcase enlivened by its topical fact-based story, The Trial of the Chicago 7 plays squarely — and compellingly — to Aaron Sorkin’s strengths,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
