A portrait of the preeminent USA Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. With unrivalled access, RBG is a heartfelt yet considered examination of Ginsburg’s life and career: from her key legal battles for women’s rights, her own ground-breaking career as the second only female Supreme Court Justice, and her late stature as an icon of pop and political culture.
With Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent passing, and her controversial replacement with the conservative Amy Coney Barret, Ginsburg’s political significance becomes that much clearer. RBG traces her life and its impact: from her ‘30s Depression-era childhood, to interviews with lawyers and key feminists like Gloria Steinem on the significance of Ginsburg’s milestone ‘70s arguments for women’s rights, to her late fame as the ‘Notorious’ RBG and her powerful articulation of both majority opinions and dissents of the Court. Winner of the 2018 National Board of Review Best Documentary.
