About the film:
The exceptional life and career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. Highly acclaimed and Academy Award-nominated for Best Documentary Feature.
At 84, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was still inspired by the lawyers who defended free speech during the Red Scare. She refused to relinquish her passionate duty, steadily fighting for equal rights for all citizens under the law. With unprecedented access, the filmmakers explored how her legal battles changed the world for women.
Magnolia Pictures will be donating net proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation in support of their Women’s Rights Project, which was co-founded by Ginsburg in 1972.
