On the Basis of Sex
Our next Rialto Recommends is Mimi Leder's 2018 biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg titled ON THE BASIS OF SEX starring Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer. 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. We rather liked the London Evening Standard's recommendation "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." Rolling Stone said "Call it "The Notorious RBG: The Early Years" as a terrific Felicity Jones finds the fire and fury in the young Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she takes on her lifelong battle against gender discrimination." ON THE BASIS OF SEX is streaming Fubo, Showtime and DirectTV HERE. It is available for rent from AMCTheatresOnDemand. It can also be purchased from the usual sources Apple, Amazon, Vudu, etc.
