On the Basis of Sex

On the Basis of Sex

The early professional life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is profiled in this simple, slightly hagiographic biopic. Brit actress Felicity Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) stars as the young lawyer who struggles to find professional employment following her graduation from Harvard Law School. Along with her devoted hubby (played by Armie Hammer) she discovers an obscure tax law case, which could crack open the possibility of equal rights for women. It's ultimately your standard, buttoned-down courtroom drama, but the cast is fiery and the filmmakers are committed to highlighting this obscure but important legal matter. FULL REVIEW: Courtroom drama lauds its subject for her role in the fight for equality by Devin D. O’Leary (1/10/2019). 120 minutes PG-13.
