RBG, June 1-10
This revelatory documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the esteemed Supreme Court Justice, actually manages to cover new ground and unfamiliar biographical details. Director/producers Julie Cohen and Betsy White are perhaps a little too in awe of their formidable subject, but Ginsberg nevertheless makes for a fascinating story of groundbreaking accomplishment and legal acumen. The film includes an extraordinary level of access to the jurist herself as well as a gamut of respectful “talking head” interviews.
