Grab some popcorn and meet us at the movies in October, as we pay tribute to the remarkable icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Our discussion will focus on two films--the 2018 movie On the Basis of Sex and the 2018 documentary RBG.
On the Basis of Sex is a fictionalized drama that highlights the early trailblazing days of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s education and legal career, as well as the love story behind her marriage. The cast includes Felicity Jones as Bader Ginsburg and Armie Hammer as her husband, Martin.
RBG is a lively historical documentary showcasing interviews while presenting background about Bader Ginsburg’s remarkable legal rulings and dissents. RBG won the Best Documentary Film of 2018 by the National Board of Review and was nominated for several other awards.
Our discussion will focus primarily on On the Basis of Sex, but the life and times, career and momentum of Justice Ginsburg will be gleaned from either film.
On the Basis of Sex is available to stream on Showtime for subscribers and on Amazon Prime with the Showtime add-on. It’s also available to digitally purchase on iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Vudu, and Google Play. RBG is streaming on Hulu for subscribers. It’s also available to digitally rent or purchase onYouTube, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes. Both these movies have been re-released with the proceeds going to the ACLU Foundation.
