In the absence of an official biography about this incredible person, Betsy West & Julie Cohen have created a superlative documentary here – incisive, passionate, scrupulously researched – not unlike the subject herself; US Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Critically praised upon release, and a sleeper box office phenomenon, this sober but engaging work delves deeply into the story and character of Ginsberg – from her birth in Brooklyn through her incredible academic & legal successes & appointments, right up to her new identity as somewhat of a pop culture icon in the 21st Century.
Featuring exclusive insights into this fascinating woman, & including all-new interview footage with Ginsberg, West & Cohen’s film is utterly comprehensive, so much so it was chosen by the National Board Of Review as their Best Documentary of 2018. An incredible ride alongside one of America’s true titans
