_On the Basis of Sex_ pleads its case well, with strong representation and solid arguments in its favour, to whit the venue of the early 1970s and the relevance of its subject. While I might object to the dramatisation of the proceedings and the Hollywood grandstanding that imbues the film, when all is said and done I find the movie a guilty pleasure about a person whom I admire. A'recommend' from me.

A well-acted movie detailing the beginning of the career of a truly formidable woman. Felicity Jones does a great job. You can feel the passion she... Ginsburg has for what's right. Armie Hammer, as her husband, plays a supportive and brilliant man in his own right. Truly a rewarding watch. Highly recommended.

The movie itself did not move me. But at the end, when I realized she died recently i cried. Such an important person is gone. I’m not from the us so I only heard if her in the last few years in media.

A conventional biopic for an unconventional woman. The film has the courage of its protagonist, Ruth Ginsburg, of her facet as a civil rights advocate, of her personality. It can be said that only Felicity Jones's hard-working performance lives up to the character. But it serves as a tribute to the judge, as a prologue to the most accurate portrait made in the documentary "RBG" (Julie Cohen, Betsy West, 2018).

When did you last go to a movie in which the audience applauded as the credits rolled? (It is not a typical Canadian response.) Behind me, a young female law student was weeping. As I sat there, I was deeply and intellectually moved by the power of this woman's life and the subsequent effect More
