The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
“It’s Jones who really shines. She effortlessly embodies Ruth Bader Ginsburg with such aplomb that when she locks her steely eyes with the camera, you can feel it in your bones that this woman is about to change the world.” THE WRAP
“A movie that floats on an atmosphere of admiration, but also one that solidly appreciates what it is like to be a pioneer for social change.” ROGEREBERT.COM
“On the Basis of Sex turns Ruth Bader Ginsberg (Felicity Jones)'s life into an electrifying courtroom drama, including all the prep.” NERD REPORT
