Taking its cue from Ruth, On the Basis of Sex includes everyone in the equation. Mothers - and fathers! - should take their brainy kids to see it.

On the Basis of Sex has buckets of appeal but when it comes to underselling the great RBG's legacy, the movie is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

It's the right film for now.

It's forgivable - the directing and performances are accomplished, and the inspiring story is well-told. It just feels very familiar and rote for the story of a woman fighting to unmake tired rules.

It's a decent, well-acted drama, if a little blandly dull in its approach.
