Q&A with Filmmaker Betsy West
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorously argued opinions have earned this tiny, soft-spoken, intellectual giant rock star status and the nickname “Notorious RBG.” RBG traces Ginsburg’s rich personal life and her barrier-busting career as a trailblazing lawyer, advocate, and judge. In the 1970s, she made legal history arguing gender-bias cases before the (all male) Supreme Court. At 84—still inspired by the lawyers who defended free speech during the Red Scare—Ginsburg continues her tenacious defense of equal rights.
“A fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that reminds people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance, now more than ever.” –Indiewire
