Before Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the star of one of this year’s biggest box office doc hits (RBG) and before she became the second woman on the US Supreme Court she fought, and won, a groundbreaking sexual discrimination case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturned a century of gender discrimination. 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of RBG on the bench.

Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) stars as Ginsburg as she goes from law student to law clerk to meeting her husband Marty (Armie Hammer), her stalwart companion and support throughout her career.

The film was directed by Mimi Leder (Deep Impact, The Peacemaker) and written by Daniel Stiepleman. It co-stars Sam Waterston and Justin Theroux.

Focus Features will release On the Basis of Sex in limited release this Christmas and wider in January. Here is the trailer.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
