"With riveting panache, Sorkin joins the dots between anti-Vietnam War demonstrators and our current explosive historical moment"
★★★★★
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"A fiery condemnation of the police state and government overreach, this is both timely and timeless. Sorkin and a superb cast make legal proceedings compelling, and then show that the law is an ass."
★★★★
- Helen O'Hara, Empire

"This is a film that examines both the past and the present day; that plots a path on the common ground between them."
★★★★
– Wendy Ide, The Observer

"Sacha Baron Cohen steals the show in Aaron Sorkin's mostly entertaining, occasionally cheesy, totally timely take on a notorious US trial."
★★★★
– Charlotte O'Sullivan, Evening Standard

"[T]he compassionate, optimistic and indeed counterintuitive ending feels like the aspirational balm that we need right now."
★★★★
– Kevin Maher, The Times

"When it all clicks, its terrific cast in full flow in the packed courtroom, it's truly stirring stuff."
★★★★
– Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"It's Oscars-bait galore in this star-studded courtroom drama from Aaron Sorkin."
★★★★
– Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro


What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police amd the National Guard. The organizers of the protest - including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale - were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
