Rating: 2/5 -- Sadly, On the Basis of Sex is just the latest example of remarkable, tough and historically important people being the subject of unremarkable, soft-as-porridge movies designed to placate the elderly and preach to the converted. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- The actors and filmmakers did well by Ginsburg by making a movie that applies the right amount of myth to her amazing life. Full Review

Seamlessly shifts between relationship and courtroom drama, but is perhaps so tightly focused that we don't really learn a lot about the woman herself, just the outdatedness of American legislation, some of which still persists today. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Boys' club is the term that leaps to mind as young Ruth Bader Ginsburg makes her way into a Harvard Law School lecture theatre amid a monochrome sea of self-satisfied male suits. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Taking its cue from Ruth, On the Basis of Sex includes everyone in the equation. Mothers - and fathers! - should take their brainy kids to see it. Full Review

Product Description:

Inspired by the powerful true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones), On the Basis of Sex depicts a then-struggling attorney and new mother facing adversity in her fight for equal rights. When Ruth takes on a ground-breaking case, she knows the outcome could alter the courts' view of gender discrimination. Stronger together, Ruth teams up with her husband, Martin Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), to fight the case that catapults her into one of the most important public figures of our time.
