Plot: The true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights, and the early cases of a historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice. Runtime: 120 min Release Date: 11 Jan 2019
Beautiful film about the career and life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, symbol of our time. A strong woman that never gave up. The cast is brilliant: Felicity Jones perfect as Ruth Bader Ginsburg , Armie Hammer, as wonderful as Felicity like his loving husband. They have an unbelievable chemistry together in the film, and I can´t imagine another performers for the roles. The rest of the cast have great performances too: Kathy Bates, Sam Waterston, Justin Theroux, Cailee Spaeny... This is a necessary film in our days, and Ruth´s story inspire us. You have to see it.
We loved it! (by parons-50432)
Hubby and I are Canadian seniors who just saw this movie and we both loved it. I was fighting back tears at the end and experienced a range of emotions throughout. RBG's indomitable spirit, hers and Marty's commitment to each other, and when she truly and passionately finds her voice - we found it truly inspirational! RBG is obviously a remarkable legal mind and the USA is lucky to have someone of her quality on their Supreme Court.One thing though: I don't understand the reviews that slam the movie as being "political" all we saw was a lawyer sincerely trying to ensure <more>
everyone received the same treatment under the law.Long may she serve!
Forget the haters, it's a great docu-drama (by fpnicolasfacebook)
The same people praising a Walk The Line or other drama-geographic movies about mens have decided that RGB only deserves the documentary treatment but no her own larger than life movie about her critical fight for woman rights and equality. Forget about those haters: this movie like Walk the Line is a great mix of emotion, humor and reminder of how social justice is something still that need us to fight for it. Go enjoy this great optimistic movie perfect for the start of a new year.
Unfair to compare to documentary (by ljcesq)
A documentary is a documentary and a movie inspired by real events is just that. Each stand alone. RBG is an outstanding documentary to which On the Basis of Sex should not be compared. Yes, the movie is old fashioned reminding one of the classic movies of the 40s. So what. The subject matter is still timely even more so in the climate we are now living in...unfortunately there are probably many who want to go back to the "great" pre-Ginsburg days.
Wonderful Film! (by imdb-5-mbrna)
Disclaimer: I saw this movie not knowing anything about the main character's real-life persona except that she's a Supreme Court Justice, and that she's dealing with health issues in the late stages of her life.I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! I was drawn in and enjoyed the acting very much. The subject matter and characters felt very real, and to think it was even remotely based on a true story made this movie a home-run for me.
RBG - The early years (by bkoganbing)
It's nice that a legend gets to see her life portrayed on screen while she is still having a pulse. I kept thinking of Thurgood Marshall also as an advocate for racial equality and his portrayal by Chadwick Boseman in the film Marshall. Both On The Basis Of Sex and Marshall take a couple of people who would serve on the Supreme Court and tell of cases in their years as advocates. On The Basis Of Sex does Ruth Bader Ginsburg justice.As the movie shows it wasn't always easy. After attending Harvard Law School after undergraduating at Cornell, Ruth Bader married Martin Ginsburg who was a <more>
year ahead of her. When Martin gets a job in New York City, she goes to her law school dean Erwin Griswold a pillar of the legal establishment played here by Sam Waterston. Progressive in many ways Griswold did in fact get the first women admitted to Harvard Law. But he did believe women ought to know their place at home and in the courtroom. Jack McCoy, Waterston is not in this film.Simply because of her sex she could not get a slew of jobs that husband Martin would have gotten easily. She had her own dometic crisis as well when Martin played by Armie Hammer came down with cancer. She was thrust into the role of breadwinner as well as homemaker. And the bread at times was only crumbs.With that kind of attitude and disdain shown her Ginzburg says this has to all change and that women have to achieve real equality. Oddly enough it's the case of a man played by Chris Mulkey who was denied an income tax deduction for hiring a home attendant for his mother and was forced to stay home and tend to her. Mulkey is a bachelor and he did not want mom going to some substandard nursing home. On the basis of a man challenging gender roles Ginzburg made her first mark.Felicity Jones of Great Britain played Ruth Bader Ginzburg a girl from Brooklyn. Not only Brooklyn, but my part of Brooklyn as I read she attended James Madison High School which was two blocks from where I lived. Nice Jewish girls from Brooklyn make their mark whether its Barbra Streisand in music or Ruth Bader Ginzburg in the law. There's such passion in her performance I can't believe that Jones will be ignored in the Oscar sweepstakes..Another who should not be ignored is Cailee Spaeny the young actress who plays daughter Jane Ginzburg. At first glance she looks like your average teen girl of the times. But this young lady has read Gloria Steinem and believes in direct action far more than Mom does. Her scene with Mom with those construction workers is a classic. Hope Spaeny gets some recognition in the Supporting Actress category, she really nails it in her role.Good gray Sam Waterston as pillar of the legal establishment was one kind of foe. But there is the climax scene at the 10th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals an actor Jack Raynor shows how deeply sinister opposition to change could be. One thing the New Right has always been good at is recognizing threats to its perceived view of society. Recently one of their religious right legal organizations lobbied against including LGBTQ people in anti-lynching bill in Congress. They reasoned that if you simply made it wrong to kill people on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity they might actually ask society to treat them with dignity and respect, legally, economically, and socially.Raynor with that smug arrogance that the religious right has says that the foundations of society as they see it will be torn asunder if Ginzburg's client wins this case. Felicity Jones who has been told to stick to facts and precedents and keep her passion in check gets up and just demolishes Raynor. With passion in check, Jones impresses those Appellate Judges with the facts but the restrained passion is there. She sure impressed me.Hope they'll be some Oscar consideration for Jones, for Hammer and for Spaeny. Most of all in that field of 10 for On The Basis Of Sex.
My wife and I, both professionals about 15 years behind the real RBG, found this movie both fascinating and painful--almost as painful as the negative reviews that object to the Subject on the basis not of sex, but of politics. Too bad the knuckle-draggers can't get past their own biases to enjoy this very good and intellectually engaging movie. And yes, we did find it suspenceful. My wife, too got directed to the typing pool after four years of college and three of grad school, and I hope I was half as supportive as Marty. We thoroughly enjoyed this reminder that even today the arc of <more>
history doesn't bend itself, and that the only way to achieve your goals, especially gasp equality, is to keep pushing. And we thought the acting was first-rate, and loved the physical mismatch of the tiny Jones and towering Hammer.
It's not a movement if everyone is just sitting. (by nogodnomasters)
The film starts in 1956 with RBG Felicity Jones entering Harvard Law school as one of 9 women. Unable to get a job practicing law in NYC, she takes a job teaching at Rutgers. The production then jumps to 1970 where it focuses on Moritz vs Commissioner, a case used to end gender discrimination.The film showed us a human RBG with fears and flaws. It also shows the overwhelming support she received from her family, which helped make her the success she had become.Guide: 1 F-word.
This film probably lost an entire star just by being released after RBG rather than before. (by brianjohnson-20043)
I think this film was solid. Not perfect. But I certainly am not ashamed I paid to see it.I saw the RGB documentary first. And that really undermines this film because a viewer has an easy time seeing how this biopic doesn't perfectly address the actual source material. This is a VERY common component for films based on reality. And when there is a documentary which comes out first, a lot of the changes are very exposed to the viewer.Felicity Jones didn't seem to sound like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her voice is a bit higher than Ruth's real voice and Jones' meter was a bit more <more>
quick and modern than the way RBG sounds in the recordings of her trials. RBG sounds more like a kind old elementary teacher who really knows what she was talking about. Jones sounded more like an annoyed young grad student in her delivery.The film highlights one trial which I'm almost positive wasn't RBG's first trial as a lawyer. Or her first win to promote laws to end sex discrimination. But the film presents it as if it is her first.The film never shows the court deciding that she won her case. It is shown in text, which isn't enough if you ask me. Also I didn't like that they seemed to prop up RBG by making her husband troublesome when dealing with questions in the trial. They show the husband provide great answers to those situations earlier in the film when they were preparing for the trial. This was a case where his character became inconsistent for the sake of overall narration. Rather than because his actions happened.Overall I think the story was fine. And most of my complaints are very small. I don't have a gripe with them consolidating the story to her first victory for a trail on the basis of sex. That's the kind of thing biopics regularly do for the sake of the medium. I don't mind where they started the story either. I like the historical references they make to all the failed attempts to end gender discrimination laws over 100 years.I generally liked the way they depicted RBG's husband and family. Apart from perhaps feeling they should have shown her husband happy to survive and pass the checkpoints in surviving his cancer.If you haven't seen RBG or The Basis of Sex, I recommend seeing this one first.
