What a wonderful movie about the early days of RBG. She has been one of my idols and inspiration for years. I loved how her husband encouraged her always. I loved watching how mother & daughter grew to love each other's differences. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

Outstanding movie! I give this one 5 stars! I truly enjoy movies about intelligent women who are not afraid to take chances! Every young boy & girl should watch this movie instead of all the crap movies that Hollywood is churning out! Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you are my idol & one of the greatest Americans of this century! Hurray!!!!!

Every man, woman and child should watch this movie of a woman that changed old fashioned laws made by men. I would like to know who the three senators were who voted against her nomination to the Supreme Court of the USA - shame on you three

Outstanding!

We need so much more inspiring works like this, in these trying and twisted times.

I thought this was a very solid, good bio-pic. I thought Felicity Jones was excellent as a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The period details were all very good and the story about Ruth's struggles as an ambitious young lawyer and the obstacles she faced and the rights she fought for was very absorbing. This movie serves as a timely reminder that all rights and privileges that modern people have all have come from determination and perseverance. Rights and freedoms never seem to be given easily, they have to be fought for tooth and claw every step of the way and these challenges are never easy. It was enjoyable as a movie but it was also inspirational to learn more about this courageous and laudable real-life human rights leader.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a heroine of our times. Everyone should know what she accomplished for equality and women's rights.

A great look into the life events leading to RBG’s first major triumph in the courts. Younger people are often surprised at the extent of discrimination toward women in colleges and the workplace clear into the 1970s. Here it is made real through the real-life experiences of one well known heroine. Loved it!

Well meaning but insipid film. Very slow, dully acted and wearily directed. Painfully clichéd movie.

What quality or trait defines the right of any person to exist as equal to any other? The life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn't start in the Supreme Court. Her personal and professional struggles for equal rights between men and women have defined American history and freedom like few events in the country's existence. Follow the many steps Ginsburg had to take and the many uphills battles she had to win from Harvard Law School to the U.S. court system to prove that a woman could know the law and act upon it as fairly and impartially as any man.
