The cast of “The Trial of the Chicago 7” is opening up to “Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst about the period piece written and directed by Aaron Sorkin.

The Netflix movie tells the story of a 1968 peaceful protest outside the Democratic convention that turned violent, and the trial that followed.

Eddie Redmayne told Cheslie, “We need to learn from our history,” adding, “It has become staggeringly, eerily relevant.” His co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II shared, “It speaks to revolution, it speaks to young people voicing their opinions.”

“The Trial of the Chicago 7” is streaming on Netflix.
