One of last summer’s most popular documentaries was RGB, which chronicled the incredible career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (my review). This biopic dramatizes her marriage and early career up to the landmark case that solidified her crusade as an equal rights activist. Even though Felicity Jones does a decent job of bringing out the character’s strengths and doubts, the whole thing feels a bit like a Lifetime flick. The relationship with her husband (Armie Hammer) is sweetly romantic and the repetitive discrimination borders on message movie. The story plays out interestingly enough, but as the crucial trail gets closer, the movie’s momentum bogs down with legal wrangling. Even so, it’s an interesting and a well-made ode to Ginsburg’s intellect and influence.
