Join us for this special screening that is an unashamed valentine to the legendary Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a justice of the US Supreme Court. With unprecedented access, the all female filmmakers explore how her early legal battles whilst working for the ACLU, and her voice on the US Supreme Court, changed the course of history for women in America. It provides an intimate portrait of the life, love and work of the notorious RBG. The film has been described as a “riveting, surprisingly touching documentary which reveals how the quiet, intense Ginsburg became one the most iconic Supreme Court justices in American history.”

Paula Gerber said of the movie, “This film is an epic love story; it beautifully captures RBG’s two great loves - the law and her husband and biggest fan, Marty. It is a moving tribute that will have you laughing and crying at the same time.”

Melissa Castan describes it as “The movie hit of the year! Given Trump’s recent nomination of a new Supreme Court Justice, RBG’s story is even more important, heroic and timely.”
