‘This cheerful doc lionizes the notorious Supreme Court justice’s inspiring arc from feminist lawyer to internet icon’ – Variety

A Sundance ’18 festival favorite, RBG is a delightful and surprising portrait of an extraordinary woman and an unlikely rock star: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Now 84, Ginsburg refuses to relinquish her passionate duty, steadily fighting for equal rights for all citizens under the law as she writes vigorous dissenting opinions that have earned her the title “Notorious RBG.” Through intimate interviews and unprecedented access to Ginsburg’s life outside the court, RBG tells the electric story of her consuming love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty—and of a life’s work as a trailblazer in defining gender discrimination and an icon of justice in the highest court in the land.
