"On the Basis of Sex" is inspired by the powerful and timely true story of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) who led the fight against gender discrimination and blazed an unprecedented trail for equality. From being one of only a few women accepted at Harvard Law to co-founding the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU, Bader Ginsburg overcame all odds to become one of the most influential figures in the battle for equal rights, passionately arguing ground-breaking landmark cases and giving a voice to those unable to be heard.
Interesting but by the books biopic
- On the Basis of Sex review by PC
The story of Ruth Ginsberg is a very interesting one, having not watched the recent documentary I knew very little about her but found her grit & determination to be quite inspirational. The performances are very good throughout but the problem is that the direction is pretty much point the camera without any flourishes or flair. I will watch the documentary as the story was interesting.
