Director: Mimi Leder

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become an iconic figure, using formidable legal arguments to enshrine the rights of women and minority groups, with inspirational wit, style and charisma. In Leder’s dramatic retelling, Jones channels the balance of resilience, idealism and pragmatism that saw Ginsburg progress through a hostile Harvard Law School – where she both met her husband Marty (Hammer) and nursed him through illness – to secure groundbreaking legal reform in her first major case and change American public life forever.
“On the Basis of Sex” does a brisk, coherent job of articulating what Ginsburg accomplished and why it mattered” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
