I didn't want this movie to end! I could watch 2 hours on every case Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fought. Fantastic movie.

Just watched this on a plane ride, and I thought it was great! I really loved the scene where Jane calls the catcallers assholes and RBG stands in the rain amazed and inspired.

I also thought the relationship between the Ginsburgs was lovely- not saccharine and realistic- they accidentally hurt each other, realise, change and grow together. There is a genuine concern, care and love visible in how the actors interact together.

Memorable: when she is asked why she isn't content with teaching and letting the students change the world: "that's what I wanted to do!"

Also she was awesome and after reading about RBG through metafilter it was great to see a movie to learn more about her life.
