The Press Reviews

  • The documentary is at its best when it digs into how Ginsburg changed the legal landscape of America. Full Review

  • A documentary that, like its subject, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is eminently sober, well-mannered, highly intelligent, scrupulous and just a teeny-weeny bit reassuringly dull. Full Review

  • This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator-not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives Full Review

  • Finding reciprocity - in the eyes of the law, your partner, your colleagues - is the essence of this documentary, one that comes at a moment that desperately lacks it. Full Review

  • Even with such rich material, the movie can be a tad prosaic. But as you listen to Ginsburg read her words, you begin to perceive the secret of her power. Full Review

  • This woman is a force, and the great service this clear-eyed and admiring documentary provides is to emphasise not just Ginsburg's work on the court but how extraordinarily influential she was before she even got there. Full Review

  • You may love or hate her, badmouth her or bow down to her. But you have to recognise the impact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has made to the fabric of our country. Full Review

  • The movie's touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion. Full Review
