Now in her eighties, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg’s life and career.
When, after graduating at the top of her law school class, she could not get a job, she remembered her mother’s advice: anger is a waste of time. Eventually, she was able to use her formidable legal skills to fight for justice for women–a fight she has continued through five decades.
Justice Ginsburg’s steadfast commitment remains, not only for gender equality but for democratic institutions that protect the rights of all citizens. No wonder she is a millennial icon.
“A MEMORABLE AND VALUABLE FILM.”
– Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
“Will inspire many and should appeal to anyone with an open mind.”
– Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
“AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM. No matter your political leanings, RBG tells a heartwarming tale of determination and resilience.”
