The British actor plays the late American anti-war and civil rights activist Tom Hayden. “We’re going to Chicago to protest the Vietnam war,” chimes in Cohen as anarchist Abbie Hoffman. The trailer goes on to depict the corrupt justice system and institutional racism. “We’ve dealt with jury tampering, wire tapping, a defendant that was literally gagged,” says radical lawyer William Kunstler (Mark Rylance), to which US District Judge Julius Hoffman (Frank Langella) responds, “You are the first to suggest that I have discriminated against a Black man.” Criminal defence lawyer Leonard Weinglass (Ben Shenkman) replies: “Then let the record show that I am the second.” This will be Sorkin’s first feature film to release since ‘Molly’s Game’ in 2017. ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ will drop on Netflex on October 16. It’s set to hit select theatres this month.
