Cinemaholics Podcast #190 – The Trial of the Chicago 7, Love and Monsters, American Utopia, Spontaneous, The Kid Detective

This week, we call Aaron Sorkin to the stand for his latest film The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is now on Netflix and stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and many more. We also find some time for love, or Love and Monsters to be specific, which stars Dylan O’Brien and Jessica Henwick. We discuss Spike Lee’s concert film, David Byrne’s American Utopia, which is now on HBO Max. Plus Spontaneous, a high school “sci fi black comedy” starring Katherine Langford and Charlie Plummer. And finally, The Kid Detective, a dark comedy starring Adam Brody and Sophie Nélisse.
