|Subject:||Ruth Bader Ginsburg|

This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator -- not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives, but qualities that honor the slow, uphill slog of positive change.
4 stars out of 5 -- RBG is an outright celebration of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the female justice who in battling gender equality laws for decades has changed the landscape for women working in America today.
RBG is an unapologetic valentine to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but a sharp and spiky one too -- a celebration of the scrunchie-wearing octogenarian not just as a pop-culture folk hero and millennial meme but as a wife, a warrior, and a true iconoclast. -- Grade: A-
Rating: 3/5 -- The documentary makes us grateful for the truth that "It takes all sorts to make a world" - and for the fact that RBG may be staunchest bulwark against the unmaking of that world, in the present American political moment. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Will doubtlessly be a crowd-pleaser for the justice's legions of fans, but it will also be an illuminating piece of history for those who only know her as the "great dissenter" liberal hero. Full Review
The Dispatch (Lexington, NC)
This solid documentary approaches its subject, supreme court justice and liberal idol Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with much the same calm eloquence that Bader Ginsburg has brought to her judgments over her career.
RBG shines a strong, clear spotlight on female jurists who are out to change the world, one small step at a time.
This documentary from directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen provides an intimate look into the trailblazing life and career of octogenarian Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It focuses on her landmark gender-bias cases in the 1970s, her ongoing ideological battles, and her marriage with Martin Ginsburg.
