Coming to Cinemas 26 July 2018

Hero. Icon. Dissenter.

A look a the life of US Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who, now 84 and still inspired by the lawyers who defended free speech during the Red Scare, continues to fight for equal rights for all citizens. Through intimate interviews and unprecedented access to Ginsburg’s life outside the court, RBG tells the story of Ginsburg’s love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty - and of a life’s work that led her to become an icon of justice in the highest court in the land.
