Movie Info

RBG uses archival footage to trace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's barrier-busting career, following her rise from a brainy Brooklynite to the highest court in the land. It also delves into her relationship with her husband, Martin Ginsburg, and catches the justice in private moments, following her on workouts and with her granddaughter. What emerges is a portrait of a person who used her legal career to fight for women and minorities.


Critic Reviews for RBG

This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator-not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives

It's the insights into [Ginsburg's] personal life that feel the most vital, moving "RBG" beyond the kind of information you could read on a Wikipedia page (as ably and entertainingly rendered as they may be on the big screen).

January 22, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A documentary that, like its subject, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is eminently sober, well-mannered, highly intelligent, scrupulous and just a teeny-weeny bit reassuringly dull.

Intimate without being obtrusive, RBG doesn't exactly demystify the Supreme Court so much as it brings us closer to one of its greats.

Regardless of your political ideology, you'll come away with a newfound respect for the tireless pioneer of gender equality.

The documentary is at its best when it digs into how Ginsburg changed the legal landscape of America.
