On the Basis of Sex

IT WAS A MAN’S WORLD. SO SHE CHANGED IT.

After failing to find a job as a lawyer even though she graduated at the top of her class, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) is teaching law when her husband (Armie Hammer) brings her attention to a case that could have enormous legal consequences. In the documentary RBG (2018), we learned what a trailblazer Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is when it comes to womenā€™s rights. This film, written by her nephew, dramatizes how she found her voice as an attorney in 1970. Very conventional, but still worth a look thanks to a compelling story and the two lead performances.

2018-U.S. 120 min. Color. Directed byĀ Mimi Leder. Screenplay: Daniel Stiepleman. Cast: Felicity Jones (Ruth Bader Ginsburg), Armie Hammer (Martin Ginsburg), Justin Theroux (Mel Wulf), Kathy Bates, Sam Waterston, Cailee Spaeny.

Trivia: Natalie Portman was reportedly first considered as Ruth Ginsburg.
