At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.
This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator-not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives.Amy Nicholson, Variety
It's the insights into [Ginsburg's] personal life that feel the most vital, moving "RBG" beyond the kind of information you could read on a Wikipedia page (as ably and entertainingly rendered as they may be on the big screen).Kate Erbland, indieWire
A documentary that, like its subject, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is eminently sober, well-mannered, highly intelligent, scrupulous and just a teeny-weeny bit reassuringly dull.Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
