At the age of 84, 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.

"The movie's touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Intimate without being obtrusive, RBG doesn’t exactly demystify the Supreme Court so much as it brings us closer to one of its greats."
- John Fink, The Film Stage
"Ginsburg’s life — and its many lessons, both learned and taught — come to entertaining and energetic life. It’s a fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that makes one heck of a play to remind people of Ginsburg’s vitality and importance, now more than ever. "
- Kate Erbland, Indiewire
"A chronology of Ginsberg's subsequent victories shows how patiently and shrewdly she worked to establish the existence and pernicious effects of sex discrimination."
- J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"With the #MeToo movement occupying our culture, it's easy to say that this is the perfect time for a detailed, thorough film on Ginsburg. But frankly, anytime would have been a good time."
- Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press
"Ostensibly a documentary about 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but it feels more like a love letter."
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Stands as a film that informs, and sometimes even delights with its portrait of one of the more remarkable lawyers, judges, and feminist icons of our time."
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
"This woman is a force, and the great service this clear-eyed and admiring documentary provides is to emphasize not just Ginsburg's work on the court but how extraordinarily influential she was before she even got there."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A proficient but prosaic overview of Ginsburg's (exceptional) life and (world-improving) accomplishments. If you know enough to be impressed, you've probably heard at least a few of the oft-told statistics and anecdotes that burnish the RBG myth here."
- Inkoo Kang, TheWrap
