The Trial of the Chicago 7 could not have been released at a more appropriate time. A movie about the system failing its people draws significant parallels today. This retelling of an important historical event reinvigorates the public consciousness’ push for social change. The Trial of the Chicago 7 is an other example of the impact we can have by making our voices heard.

For lack of a better term, Trey Edward Shults has made huge waves as a filmmaker since he released his first film, Krisha. A wonderful new voice with a great eye (thanks to ever-brilliant Drew Daniels who also worked on Euphoria) could make a remarkable contained drama. Then Trey went and made It Comes at Night, and the world realized he can make a wonderful horror film as well. And then comes Waves, and I hope the world realizes like I do, that Trey can make a masterpiece.
