Director: Mimi Leder Cast: Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer Country: USA Language: English A biopic of the Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, On The Basis of Sex focuses on a case about the taxation of a male caregiver which, if won, could help push the movement for gender equality forward. Not only that, Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) must face prejudice herself due to her position in a male dominated field, as she fails to find to work despite graduating top of her class from Harvard. A powerful story set during an important period in history, this film is a fantastic blend of courtroom drama and social commentary that certainly does justice to the great woman.
