Netflix is in a streak for some time now, to bring good, Oscar-worthy, and big-stars films, and Netflix is doing it again with Aaron Sorkin’s new film The Trial of the Chicago 7.
Aaron Sorkin is one of the best and most popular screenwriters working in Hollywood right now, and almost all of his films and TV series have been great.
