Description

Felicity Jones stars in the inspiring and spirited true story of young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Having graduated at the top of her law class, she still encounters difficulty in getting a job in the male-dominated field of law. Pursuing gender equality issues before they were acknowledged as an issue, she teams with her supportive husband Marty (Armie Hammer) to bring a risky and groundbreaking case before the U.S. Supreme Court and overturn a century of gender discrimination. Premiering in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th Anniversary on the Supreme Court, the film co-stars Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates, Jack Reynor, Sam Waterson, Stephen Root and Cailee Spaeny; written by Daniel Stiepleman and directed by Mimi Leder. (2018, 120 min, DCP)
