Loved The Trial of the Chicago 7. Had very little interest in the subject matter going in & only really watched it because it was from Aaron Sorkin, but it was absolutely gripping.

Eddie Redmayne & Sacha Baron-Cohen are both actors (& I use the term loosely) I usually avoid, but they were both surprisingly watchable here, & the rest of the cast was superb.

I'd love to know if the judge was really that biased in the actual trial. It seemed insane.

Wondery are doing a podcast on the Chicago 7 trial. Their Business Wars podcast is superb so will give this a listen too to see how it compares to the Hollywood version.

Loved the script but wasn't blown away by the direction. Sorkin should spend more time writing and leave the directing to proper directors (The Social Network was one of my favourite movies of the last decade).

Did anyone catch the West Wing special on HBO Max? Great seeing the gang back together, even if the "ad breaks" were somewhat preachy.

Also thought Chicago 7 was excellent. Disagree with at least one of the changes to the truth he made, however the movie was entertaining, found it funny, with some twists, and moving at the end and mostly true. The worst thing when I looked it up was totally true.

How does it match with Hill House (which I liked)?
I've seen E01 which was enjoyable - though the "English" bits were excrutiating. It's look reminds me of Hammer House of Horror which might be intentional.
