Directors: Julie Cohen & Betsy West
Nominated for Best Documentary at the 2019 Academy Awards
At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a noteworthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected intergenerational heroine and pop culture icon.
Her unique personal journey to a coveted seat on the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown until now. RBG explores Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career, including her work as a legal architect of the modern women’s rights movement. “Directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen develop a multidimensional portrait of the Justice through intimate interviews with family, friends, colleagues, and critics, along with vérité scenes and archival news footage documenting her career, family photographs, and exclusive home movies.
The filmmakers expertly weave Justice Ginsburg’s speeches and writings together with an extraordinary interview with the Justice herself, in which she discusses, in quietly profound terms, her upbringing, passions, and finding love with her husband, Marty, whom she credits with making her profession possible.” (IMDb)
