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.
During her interview, Ruth Bader Ginsburg's granddaughter Clara Spera calls Ginsburg "Bubbie" and explains that Bubbie is Yiddish for "grandmother." Later, Spera refers to her grandfather (Ginsburg's late husband Martin D. Ginsburg) as "Tateh" without explaining that Tateh is Yiddish for "father." See more »
Can one person really make a difference? Yes!!! Watch and be inspired!!
This tiny woman is a giant for our times. She has staunchly followed her leading to make women's equality a reality -- slowly, one measured step at a time, and succeeded in a quiet, determined way. Watch her story and you will believe that anything is possible!
The film keeps your attention because it shows her human side, her heart, and her determination -- all together in this wonderful woman. Her wonderful love story, her deep friendship with arch conservative Scalia, her enjoyment of theatre and opera, her wonderful sense of humor, her symbolism of the different collars she wears with her justice robes and, most of all, her unswerving path to fight for equality for both women and men of all races and backgrounds, all of this makes for an inspiring and interesting story.
The RBG is her nickname, Notorious R.B.G., a pun from rapper Notorious B.I.G. She has become a cultural icon but, more than that, she is a giant for our time.
So much I didn't know before -- it's a really special film -- you will enjoy it and it will stay with you! Go see it and bring your friends and family.
