Summary: Worth seeing, not only as a tribute to the Supreme Court Justice nicknamed “Notorious RBG” but for the context that it provides. The movie, set in 1956, premiered in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court. The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story following young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals. “On the Basis of Sex” refers to the case which overturned a century of gender discrimination. The story takes a wonky court case about a tax code expenses and turns it into a nail-biting thriller.
