Storyline

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. 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 Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

Great Movie
14 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a wonderful story about about a splendid American. It gives meaning to the phrase "A nation of laws". For those who do not know much about Ruth Bader Ginsberg, she has contributed much to our system. Take 2 hours to enjoy learning why documentary films provide so much that we need to know about contemporary America. This a gem. Don't miss it.
