Inspired by the powerful true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Academy Award® nominee Felicity Jones), On the Basis of Sex depicts a then-struggling attorney and new mother facing adversity in her fight for equal rights. When Ruth takes on a ground-breaking case, she knows the outcome could alter the courts' view of gender discrimination. Stronger together, Ruth teams up with her husband, Martin Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), to fight the case that catapults her into one of the most important public figures of our time.
Her story made history. Young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of sex discrimination.. On the Basis of Sex Wiki
Boring, not worth it, just propaganda
What a story of young RGB. She was always a leader. Resist!!
I think if you want to see the beginning of the path, to see the views she was up against, then you will like this movie. If you are looking for a high stakes drama in the style of “A Few Good Men” you will not be happy. But the stakes were much higher, the benefits we feel today. This reminds us we have made progress in equality but we also have a ways to go.
This is stormy of the woman that made doors open for woman to be where we are today.
Loved this true story of how one woman significantly shifted history. Would absolutely recommend to those looking for a drama with a good story line and not a mindless action film with no plot.
Stop with this SWJ BS!!! It always FAILS
The way this movie portrays RBG's confidence, or lack thereof, varies quite a bit from how this period in her life is presented in the RBG documentary. But maybe that's more like how it went down, in the face of the dismissive men. (Their patronizing attitudes are almost tame, as presented.) I was crying at the end, though, when we get her own words as presented. It's hard to imagine any hope for justice without the clear arguments she presented so clearly that serve as a foundation today.
Points out the strength of this magnificent lawyer, judge, wife and mother. Powerful!
Ruth’s life as already depicted in another review was better than this film. I waited 5 moths to see this I am glad I’m only out Rental. This film could of had allot of potential so disappointing I think that is what everyone is upset about. Since this was so horrible I will go look to the library for further Information on this fascinating lady. Go get the book RLN 1964
