Inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career. When Ruth (Felicity Jones) takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. From the official website

“The film works better than you have any right to expect. The English actress Felicity Jones, better known as Stephen Hawking’s wife Jane in The Theory of Everything, plays Ruth with intelligence and sympathy. What could have been preachy is fascinating. The actors climb into their roles without noticing the join.” Eye for Film
“Subtlety isn’t this movie’s strong suit and it’s often needlessly chary about drawing the parallel between sexism and racism. But it’s got a worthwhile story to tell.” The Guardian
