Co-directed and produced by Julie Cohen and Betsy West, “RBG” the documentary about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life and legacy, has released its first trailer, and we’ve watched it at least 10x!
The film uses archival footage to trace Ginsburg’s career, following her rise from to the highest court in the land. It also delves into her relationship with her husband, Martin Ginsburg, and catches the justice in never-before-seen private moments, following her on workouts and out with her granddaughter.
The film’s synopsis:
At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career.
In select theaters starting May 4th! (It can’t come soon enough)
Editor’s Update: And now you can watch the film at home!
