Bland, poorly acted, glossy biopic
11 November 2018 | by kyloqueenSee all my reviews

So bad it's criminal given the subject matter and heroine. Oscar bait at its worst. Felicity and I should remark, Armie Hammer, are terribly miscast. Somehow the emphasis on her marriage reduced her strength also. RBG documentary did her justice. Watch that instead.
