At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career. From Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.




  • Excellent

    By darstraper
    Very well done. I wasn’t aware of her incredible impact on women’s rights earlier in her career. She’s a legend. Anyone saying it’s propaganda is either completely biased or living in an alternate universe. Her accomplishments are impressive regardless of your political persuasion.

    I’d be willing to bet that most of the negative reviewers of this amazing documentary didn’t even have the courage to actually watch it. RBG is an incredibly brave and persistent fighter for equal rights and her history and her effect on our history is an incredible story. Powerful and inspiring!

    The biggest waste of an hour-and-a-half in my life, that I’ll never get back. Just look at the cast and crew and that will tell you everything you need to know.

    Feels like the movie is about me ! I love the magnolia film name as well! Totally understand the triumph and analytical emotions.
  • Garbage

    By Nature Of Threat
    Another horribly corrupt person being propped up by those in power to make it seem as if she were a saint. Hollywood, the Media and the Banks are once again creating fiction and calling it fact. Dig deeper to find out the truth and see who controls you.
  • Didn’t know anything about RBG prior to this.

    I absolutely have a new found respect for Ruth Bader Ginsburg! This documentary is phenomenal! Regardless of one’s political affiliation, RBG has paved the way for both women and men alike. I recommend RBG to ALL political parties.
  • RBG is/ was and advocate for 12 being the age...

    By MaxxHead
    ...of consent. Hmmm, wonder why the gushing producers of this puff piece didn't mention that? You can Google her position paper on lowering the age of consent to 12. How's that for "Right-wing conspiracy, libs?
  • RBG is a joke

    By gastonw101
    This movie is complete liberal garbage and has nothing to do with a true documentary. Political propaganda at its worst. Not to mention her left wing policies that she used to further her agenda.
