Movie Reviews

It's not a movement if everyone is just sitting.

The film starts in 1956 with RBG (Felicity Jones) entering Harvard Law school as one of 9 women. Unable to get a job practicing law in NYC, she takes a job teaching at Rutgers. The production then jumps to 1970 where it focuses on Moritz vs Commissioner, a case used to end gender discrimination.

The film showed us a human RBG with fears and flaws. It also shows the overwhelming support she received from her family, which helped make her the success she had become.

Guide: 1 F-word.

Feeble, telemovie-style travesty of a potentially fascinating story

At the end of this movie there's a shot of the real character on whose experiences the movie is based : Ruth Bader Ginsberg (who is portrayed in the film by Felicity Jones). She looks scarily powerful and fascinating. In fact, in this one glimpse of the real Ruth, makes you realise that she has everything this movie hasn't got: intelligence and guts. It's a very cookie-cutter, cliche-strewn, by-the- numbers telemovie-style story of a young woman overcoming gender bias to finally triumph. She, as portrayed by Felicity Jones, who despite valiant attempts at feistiness, plays her as a drip. She's married to a drip, and there's so much cosy drippiness going on that I found myself constantly groaning. Ruth is pretty; hubby is handsome and caring; all Ruth's male antagonists aren't pretty; etc. I shan't go on. but I shall see the documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Brings on Flashbacks

My wife and I, both professionals about 15 years behind the real RBG, found this movie both fascinating and painful--almost as painful as the negative reviews that object to the Subject on the basis not of sex, but of politics. Too bad the knuckle-draggers can't get past their own biases to enjoy this very good and intellectually engaging movie. And yes, we did find it suspenceful. My wife, too got directed to the typing pool after four years of college and three of grad school, and I hope I was half as supportive as Marty. We thoroughly enjoyed this reminder that even today the arc of history doesn't bend itself, and that the only way to achieve your goals, especially (gasp) equality, is to keep pushing. And we thought the acting was first-rate, and loved the physical mismatch of the tiny Jones and towering Hammer.
