From the moment I saw the trailer for On the Basis of Sex I knew it was going to be an awesome movie. While the movie hasn't hit my theater yet (Nationwide Jan. 11th) the reviews are pouring in about how great it is. Felicity Jones (Rouge One) plays Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her early years when she was finishing law school and taking on her first cases.

The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
After reading an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the thoughts on the movie, I learned that this wasn't her first case but it was one of the most majors cases that set the balls rolling for change. While parts of the story are ‘Hollywoodnized' (like Ruth attending her husband's classes) they are loosely correct depictions. I can't wait to see this movie with my daughter!
