On the Basis of Sex

"A winning, inspirational crowd-pleaser à la Hidden Figures, Leder's film follows the early accomplishments of the young Ginsburg (an assured Felicity Jones, convincingly slipping into the trailblazer's shoes), beginning in 1956." - Time Out

Today, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a long-serving and respected Supreme Court Justice. But her first encounters with the nation’s highest court came years before she was nominated to it. On the Basis of Sex is the story of Ginsburg as a young lawyer and one of her numerous groundbreaking gender-discrimination wins in the Supreme Court.

This year, audiences flocked to the celebrated documentary RBG – and now, Ginsburg’s early days of legal advocacy come to life. Director Mimi Leder dramatizes the landmark Weinberger v. Wiesenfeld case – which gave all parents equal status as caregivers under the law – while exploring the personal and family life of Ginsburg herself.

Rogue One’s Felicity Jones stars as Ginsburg, joined by Justin Theroux, Kathy Bates, and Armie Hammer as her husband Marty, in a powerful biographical drama that, despite being set in the 1970s, speaks volumes to America today. A century of discrimination is hard to overcome, but On the Basis of Sex shows how one woman managed to turn things around – and change the future of America.
