BRG: Docu of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who’s 84, is expected to attend the world premiere of RBG, the documentary about her life and legacy that first screens at the 2018 Sundance Film Fest.

“Millennials are big fans of hers,” says Julie Cohen, who co-directed the film with Betsy West. “What they love about her is the contrast between her seriousness of purpose and her lighter side.”

The moniker RBG was originally given to her by an NYU law student.¬† Ginsburg doesn’t shy away from the notoriety her nearly 25 years on the court have brought.

She allowed the filmmakers, who worked on the project for three years, into¬† her life outside the court. They show how she mingles with her fans, visits the Sante Fe Opera, and goes through her workout routine. Adds West, “She’s very proud, as an 84-year-old woman, that she keeps herself in shape.”
