Director: Mimi Leder

Starring: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux

The true story of the pioneering lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Jones), her struggles for equal rights in law and what she had to overcome in order to become a female US Supreme Court Justice – the second-ever woman in such a position.

The film focuses on the first sex discrimination case that Ruth Ginsburg took on, in the early 1970s, when she represented Charles Moritz (Chris Mulkey), a Colorado man looking after his elderly mother who was denied a tax benefit routinely given to women caring for family members. From that moment, Ruth was on a quest to banish sex discrimination in law. This film is about that legal crusade but is also about the woman at home with her children, and a portrait of Ruth’s extraordinary marriage to Marty Ginsburg (Hammer). On the Basis Of Sex tells the story of a fascinating woman, with compelling insights into the arguments of our time.
