This Oscar-nominated documentary tells the story of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who 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 from filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen. Nominated for Best Documentary at the 2019 Academy Awards and BAFTA Awards. "Ginsburg emerges as a woman remarkable intelligence and fortitude - who can get by on very little sleep." - Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail.
