"This lively film tracks [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg’s brilliant legal career, fighting for women’s workplace rights while shrewdly also taking on cases where men suffered discrimination. It pays a moving tribute to the important role played in Ginsburg’s life by her devoted husband Marty, to whom she was married for over 50 years until his death. It also highlights her most compelling pronouncements, such as that in Shelby County v Holder in 2013, in which she argued that the regional protections of the Voting Rights Act in preventing race discrimination were still necessary even when they appeared to have been rendered obsolete by precisely those improved conditions they continue to maintain." - Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian

When we first showed this heartfelt, intimate tribute to dynamo Ginsburg - 'Notorious' RBG - two years ago, we were awed to learn how this one person - this one feisty, intelligent, slyly humorous and strategic woman - had so changed the lives of minorities in the US.  Many of the landmark rulings that she won have been in place since the 1970s, and those gains in equality are taken for granted.  Trump's judicial appointments now leave some of those precedents in jeopardy, though, and it seems appropriate to take this chance to celebrate - and enjoy - RBG once again.

RIP Ruth!
