RBG - Encore Screening - Friday 3rd April - Adelaide
A revelatory documentary exploring Ruth Bader Ginsburg's exceptional life and career.
At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg has created a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected intergenerational heroine and pop culture icon. But even many of her ardent admirers don't know the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court: as a young lawyer, Ginsburg was a legal architect of the modern women's rights movement.
Directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen develop a multidimensional portrait of the Justice through intimate interviews with family, friends, colleagues, and critics, along with vérité scenes and archival news footage documenting her career, family photographs, and exclusive home movies. The filmmakers expertly weave Justice Ginsburg's speeches and writings together with an extraordinary interview with the Justice herself, in which she discusses, in quietly profound terms, her upbringing, passions, and finding love with her husband, Marty, whom she credits with making her profession possible.
West's and Cohen's access to Ginsburg for the film even included her exercise workouts with a trainer, sharing coffee at home with her granddaughter, and rehearsing backstage for a speaking role with the Washington National Opera. What emerges is a fresh and fierce authenticity, a more complete, inspiring portrait of Ginsburg than ever seen before: a complex jurist, woman, scholar, grandmother, opera lover, wife, mother, daughter, warrior, and citizen
