On the Basis of Sex

Directed by Mimi Leder

USA | 120 minutes | 2018

Inspired by a true story, On the Basis of Sex is the stirring and spirited film that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. During a time when women were expected to stay at home and take care of their husbands and children, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones) decides to become a lawyer, even though she experiences discrimination wherever she turns. She graduates from Columbia Law School, vowing to fight for freedom and gender equality. However, due to her gender, she has trouble getting a job while at the same time, men who are less qualified get positions instead. She teams up with her husband (Armie Hammer, Call Me By Your Name) to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals — one that could overturn years of discrimination and give young women a future full of hope.
