Amazing performance by Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There are some good nuanced acting here that deserves some recognition.
High five to some of the snarky remarks that Felicity Jones got to say here, which is in spirit with the true life RBG.
The supporting cast were also good in this, from Armie Hammer, Cailee Spaeny, and a scenery chewing Justin Theroux.
Plays off as a great companion piece to the documentary “RBG,” and gives us a nice human drama about how Ruth Bader Ginsburg is as a person, outside her already legendary reputation.
This is still a relatively straight forward movie, with what is essentially a David vs Goliath type premise. Doesn’t mean this movie isn’t capable of keeping your attention throughout, because it does. Who doesn’t like arguments about laws and cultural change?
As a biographical film, it wisely focuses the main story on one of Ginsburg’s first major cases, without the need to try and cram too much into one film. Consider this like a superhero origin story for “the Notorious RBG.”
There are some time jumps that felt a bit abrupt, and come off as big gaps in the narrative.
Some might argue that the portrayal of how Women were treated back in that era was too heavy handed and over exaggerated.
Or maybe Women really were just treated that way back in the day.
