RBG

Dirs. Julie Cohen, Betsy West | USA 2019| 98 min | PG

“All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks”

The Notorious RBG, AKA Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a radical ground-breaker. Nominated as 107th justice to the United States Supreme Court, the quietly formidable 84 year-old with a Rockstar following works out and works hard.

Ginsburg held her nerve in a time when being a woman “was an impediment”; employers could fire a woman for being pregnant and banks made women have their husbands co-sign to withdraw money.

Through home movies, archive footage and interviews, this is an intimate portrait of a woman who has tirelessly and patiently fought to bring women into formerly exclusively male spaces, with a devoted husband as her most valued ally.

Tickets: £7.75 / £6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)
