At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon (the notorious RBG) – racking up victories for gender equality since the early 1970s and writing brilliant dissenting opinions on important issues.
But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career from directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen. Unrated / 97 mins.
