In the immediate wake of a hugely successful documentary portrait as well as a hefty just-published biography, the canonization of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues with this dramatic presentation of her trailblazing life.

Young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) teams with her husband Marty (Armie Hammer) to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The perseverance and historical precedents associated with this brilliant and beguiling legal pioneer are present and accounted for, making for numerous inspiring moments.

An interesting counterpoint to last spring’s hit documentary RBG, this stirring biopic continues to celebrate Ginsburg’s courage, brilliance and fierce determination to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
