Why You Should See This Film
It bears repeating: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not your garden variety Supreme Court Justice. RBG gleefully documents the compassionate human behind Ginsburg's fiercely intelligent mind — whether serving on the bench, appearing in opera productions, lifting weights at the gym or just resting at home, watching herself be impersonated on Saturday Night Live. She might just be the most inspirational legal rock star of all time.
