RBG is up for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and we are screening it again as part of our Oscar Celebration at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Sat, Feb 23rd.
You may know her accomplishments, but chances are you haven’t heard her story. RBG reveals the woman behind the memes.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has created a breathtaking legal legacy for women’s rights while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. The personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court during a hostile time for women, is revealed in this inspiring and multidimensional portrait. Now 85, Ginsburg continues to exercise vigorous dissenting opinions (and equally vigorous exercise workouts). RBG was released in May; two short months later, her voice is more essential than ever. (97 min)
The idea that women are equal citizens — that barring them from certain jobs and educational opportunities and treating them as the social inferiors of men are unfair — may not seem especially controversial now. RBG uses Justice Ginsburg’s own experiences to emphasize how different things were not so long ago.The movie’s touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion. Those qualities resonate powerfully in the dissents that may prove to be Justice Ginsburg’s most enduring legacy, and RBG is, above all, a tribute to her voice. –A.O. Scott, The New York Times
