An Inspiring Biopic of a Fighter

Mother, grandmother and an accomplished fighter for equality - the U.S. Supreme Court judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg is all this and more. Having faced her own obstacles in the beginning of her career, Ginsburg has dedicated her life for taking down the patriarchal systems of the society. RBG is a biopic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, covering her exceptional career and life in chronological order from the early years to her most recent fame in social media.

This 85-year-old iron lady’s charisma and no-nonsense attitude are awe-inspiring, earning her the nickname “Notorious RBG”. This heartfelt film by Betsy West and Julie Cohen is also a love story. When the pressure was at its highest, Ginsberg's husband stood by her side and supported her in her career choices, reminding her that a woman is able to stand firmly on her own two feet even in front of the most callous institute of patriarchal power. 

Screened for the first time at Sundance Film Festival, RBG is not only an astonishing biopic, but also a striking commentary of the current social discourse. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has already achieved great things, but her fight for equality isn't over yet.
