ON THE BASIS OF SEX

IMDbRotten Tomatoes
CLOSED CAPTIONING AVAILABLE
Ruth Bader Ginsburg — the Notorious RBG to those who cheer her 25 years of defiantly independent thinking on the U.S. Supreme Court — sure as hell deserves a biopic. At 85, the jurist is a cultural icon. And anyone who wants a Ginsburg portrait that covers all the bases can check out “
RBG”, the hit doc. “On the Basis of Sex” is more like an origin story that catches Ginsburg in the enthralling act of inventing herself, highlighting the ups and downs of the trailblazer’s formative period. Felicity Jones (“Rogue One”), the gifted British actress, has no trouble finding the intellectual rigor and propulsive drive that define this 5’1″ dynamo. Even the title reflects Ginsburg’s career-long battle against gender discrimination — so it’s fitting that the film is directed by a woman. Mimi Leder (“The Peacemaker”) forgoes cinematic innovation to tell her subject’s story in the clearest, bluntest, most RBG-appropriate way possible. From her days locking horns with the male aristocracy at Harvard Law School to her retreat to academia (when she was turned down by major law firms), Ginsberg never met a hurdle she couldn’t climb. And she had plenty of obstacles to overcome. --Rolling Stone
