Typically fun Sorkin thing. Brings back memories for some of us.
BUT. One scene really hit me hard. Bobby Seale in jail and Tom Hayden visiting.
Seale: The seven of you, you've all got the same father, right?
Seale: I'm talking to you.
Seale: You all got the same father, right?
Seale: "Cut your hair, don't be a fag, respect authority, respect America, respect me"
Seale: Your life, it's a 'Fuck you' to your father, right?
Seale: A little?
Seale: Any you can see how that's different from a rope on a tree?
The lines delivered calmly and without malice by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The quiet voice louder than anything else in the movie.
Such a microcosm of the liberal movement, why it is so hard to do things together, even by people with pure hearts and the best of intentions.
