This affectionate portrait of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an unexpected popular hit, not unlike the tiny, soft-spoken eighty-five-year-old jurist herself. The film looks beyond the SNL sketches and “Notorious” memes to outline Ginsburg’s role as a dissenting voice on an increasingly conservative court and her equally crucial earlier career as a patient and persistent litigator...   More >

See it large—a dance musical as antithetical to the small screen as West Side Story, whose choreography it emulates and whose star George Chakiris improbably appears here, along with Gene Kelly, Mr. American in Paris himself.
