It’s no doubt that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Notorious R.B.G., is known for the contributions she has made to the United States since she was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by Bill Clinton.
R.B.G. has been instrumental in dozens of SCOTUS cases concerning and affecting marginalized communities and minorities such as same-sex marriage, abortion, and gender discrimination among many others. R.B.G. has shaken things up in SCOTUS as only the second female to be appointed.
We know a lot about R.B.G.’s life since being appointed as SCOTUS Justice, but what about the woman behind those iconic glasses? The popularity of her documentary RBG gave much insight on the workings of the modern-day hero. But everyone knows that every great icon MUST have a bio pic.
W Magazine and other media have shared the release of the first trailer for R.B.G.’s bio pic On the Basis of Sex which stars Felicity Jones. The film is set in the 1970s and follows Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the early stages of her law career. The ever so handsome Armie Hammer plays Ginsburg’s husband. The film also stars Justin Theroux and Kathy Bates and is directed by Mimi Leder.
On the Basis of Sex opens in theaters December 25, 2018 and will tell the story of a courageous woman who graduated top of her class at Columbia Law School and has been a pioneer in our legal system.
