One of the breakout successes of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, RBG traces Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s remarkable rise, from her earliest days in Brooklyn to the highest court in the land. An icon among 1970s-era Feminists and “woke” Millennials alike, and an enemy to many on the political Right, the Justice Ginsburg that emerges in RBG is unexpectedly gentle and soft-spoken—given the fame (or infamy) of her scathing minority opinions. “The Notorious RBG,” as she has been dubbed by her younger fans, was both a fierce advocate for workplace equality and women’s rights, and a close friend to her fellow opera-loving Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia. Justice Ginsburg was also a very devoted wife for many years, finding extraordinary personal and professional support in her doting attorney husband, Martin Ginsburg. Making great use of archival documentary footage and interviews with everyone from Gloria Steinem to Orrin Hatch, RBG provides a robust and funny portrait of the still-vigorous Ginsburg as she approaches a quarter century on the court.
