Let’s see what Michael thought of this movie:


The film is about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg and is a fascinating look at her life. What impressed me most is her sense of humor and her love affair with her husband Marty – a tax attorney who she met when they were both in law school at Harvard. She eventually transferred and graduated from Columbia Law School after her husband was hired at a New York law firm and they had 2 young children. The scenes of her working out with a trainer, beyond her age (she is now 85), is more impressive knowing that her staying on the bench deprives trump of screwing up and unbalancing the Court even more. Also, the scenes of her watching them do her on Saturday Night Live and laughing along with them – made me laugh as well. She is a wonderful woman and even more impressive after you watch this (and I just saw the fictional account of her early life – “On The Basis of Sex” – also very good – but the doc is better.
