Movie Info

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.

A chronology of Ginsberg's subsequent victories shows how patiently and shrewdly she worked to establish the existence and pernicious effects of sex discrimination

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

January 25, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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.

It's an engrossing, sometimes quite moving story...

April 18, 2018 | Full Review…

RBG doesn't break any new ground in terms of filmmaking style, and it gets a little distracted with trivia like her love of opera or her workout routine. But it's a good summation of a brilliant career.
