RBG, a fond and informative documentary portrait of Justice Ginsburg during her 85th year on the subject of earth and her 25th regarding the bench, is both evidence of this status and a partial parable of how it came roughly.
Directed by Betsy West and Julie Cohen, the film is a jaunty assemblage of interviews, public appearances and archival material, organized to illuminate its subjects temperament and her accomplishments therefore far and wide afield. Though it begins considering audio snippets of Justice Ginsburgs right-wing detractors who see her as a demon, a devil and a threat to America RBG takes a pointedly high road through recent diplomatic controversies. Its celebration of Justice Ginsburgs autograph album of higher activism and jurisprudence is partisan but not especially polemical. The filmmakers part her convictions and endure that the audience will, too.
