The Chicago 8 is the true story of the notorious 1968 trial that resulted when seven leaders of an anti-war movement, and a member of the Black Panthers, were charged with conspiracy to incite devastating riots in Chicago. Desperate to stop what they saw as an "immoral war", this group was ready to take on the establishment, express their freedom of speech by all means necessary, while paying a price for their actions. Never in America's history has youthful protest captured society's imagination nor polarized it to such a degree. The Chicago 8 features a star-studded soundtrack with artists such as Bob Dylan and Jefferson Airplane. The cast includes Gary Cole (The Brady Bunch Movie), Danny Masterson (That 70's Show), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Philip Baker Hall (Argo), Steven Culp (The West Wing), Thomas Ian Nicholas (The American Pie series), Darren Criss (Glee) and Orlando Jones (How to Live with your Parents for the Rest of your Life).
