Ruth Bader Ginsburg is only the second woman every appointed to the Supreme Court. As she turns 85 this year, she remains a key liberal voice on the court. In recent years, she’s written strongly worded dissenting opinions on conservative-leaning decisions. She’s been embraced by a younger generation of feminists who dubbed her The Notorious R.B.G.

In the documentary RBG, filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West gain close access to Ginsburg, even covering her workout routine. Ginsburg and her close associates trace her history as a pioneering woman lawyer who fought important sex discrimination cases for the ACLU in front of the Supreme Court before she joined the bench herself.

At the heart of the film is a moving love story between Ruth and her husband Martin Ginsburg. They met at university. Martin was far ahead of his time in supporting his wife’s career. This film feels perfectly timed for today’s renewed battle for gender equity.
