RBG (2018): As Remarkable As They Said…

I’m guessing that my non-Americanness is the reason I hadn’t properly heard of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until the RBG trailer was released. The shame!

Now that I’ve seen directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen’s documentary, it’s clear that Bader Ginsburg really is as impressive as the preview suggested. What West and Cohen deliver is a well structured film that tells the story of who she is and the truly vital role she’s played as a defender of women.

Learning about Bader Ginsburg’s earlier life – all the way through to her current position as Justice of the US Supreme Court, RBG shares details of the many Iconic cases Bader Ginsburg fought in court; all in the name of her mission to make life better for women. We hear from the lady herself as well as her friends colleagues and family.

As I continued to watch, this great story became even more impressive to me as I learned about Bader Ginsburg’s character and all that it took to get to where she is. If you didn’t already know, On The Basis Of Sex (2018), a brand new feature length biography of Bader Ginsburg, with Felicity Jones in the leading role is due for for release in a few months. Post RBG viewing, I’m now even more excited to experience it.

I can’t help but pause in appreciation when I think about Bader Ginsburg’s work, especially in the 1970s and how it really did change everything. Watch it because of all the reasons mentioned.

RBG is a Betsy West and Julie Cohen directed documentary about the life and work of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsberg has been described by admirers as a superhero and someone who ‘changed the way the world is for American women…’

I look forward to learning more about this clearly very impressive lady.

I’d probably also enjoy a feature length movie about her life. Maybe starring… I tried and failed at not saying Meryl Streep.

RBG Release Dates: May 4th, 2018 (US)…
