How does an 85-year-old Supreme Court justice end up a feminist icon, a symbol of progress and a frequent tattoo-motif on American biceps? The answer is simple – by being Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In this inspiring and spirited documentary, Julie Cohen and Betsy West tell the story about how this small woman from Brooklyn smashed all the glass ceilings on her way to the Supreme Court – and about a crusade against discrimination that continues to this day. RGB is a delightful film about a remarkable woman, and an immediate audience favourite.
