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.

Ginsburg emerges as a woman of remarkable intelligence and fortitude - who can get by on very little sleep.

What emerges is an intriguing portrait of a woman described as shy and retiring but with "a quiet magnetism," a work horse and a master legal strategist.

Top Critic

RBG's superficiality makes it good background material about the subject and the forces that guided her life's crusade but the blinders it willingly wears represent its greatest flaw.

May 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Even with such rich material, the movie can be a tad prosaic. But as you listen to Ginsburg read her words, you begin to perceive the secret of her power.
