Review by Poppy Mae Bee
Biographical film is not my favourite genre. However, I found this one to be both interesting and informative. Well acted and exciting, It covers the first years of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's legal career up to the point where she quietly cracks the first glass ceiling.
Since then, she has been a valiant legal warrior conquering dragon after dragon of outdated and dangerously destructive gender biased laws in the USA. We may not be American but certainly we have followed in example many of the precedents RBG and other lawyers etc. have made paths.
Many of the laws we as women in North America take for granted were not in existence just decades ago. For example unmarried woman were not allowed to own property on her own. Women needed a male relative such as father or husband's signature to receive a credit card only a few decades ago.
A great double bill would be this film and the documentary RBG. Enjoy. Also enjoyable for the true married love story and the vintage costumes.
