RBG

Rated PG 97 minutes 2018

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman justice of the Supreme Court, has been fighting for equal rights and against sex discrimination all her adult life — and that adult life evidently began early in her childhood. This informative and ultimately encouraging documentary by longtime doc-makers Julie Cohen and Betsy West has the advantage of first-person participation by its subject, who is seen working out at the gym and appearing in TV talk shows. It gives us a glimpse as to why she is considered a brilliant proponent of civil rights as well as an eloquent moral authority, especially to her young-female-lawyer following. Also among her talking-head admirers: Gloria Steinem and Sen. Orrin Hatch (surprise!). Observes Ginsburg: “What has happened to me could only happen in America.” (97 min., 2018, rated PG)
