At the age of 85, 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 directed and produced by Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

With Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane and James Ginsburg, Clara Spera, Gloria Steinem, Nina Totenberg, Lilly Ledbetter, Sharron Frontiero and Stephen Wiesenfeld, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, Bill Clinton, Ted Olson, Judge Harry Edwards, Senator Orrin Hatch, Eugene Scalia and Bryant Johnson.

"This cheerful doc lionizes the notorious Supreme Court justice's inspiring arc from feminist lawyer to internet icon." — Variety

"... too cute by half — and still a must-see" — Rolling Stone

“The movie’s touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
