    “On the Basis of Sex” centers around Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) as a young lawyer as she teams up with her husband, Martin D. Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), to bring a case before the U.S. Court of Appeals that will overturn a century of gender discrimination. The supporting cast includes Justin Theroux, Sam Waterston, Jack Reynor, and Kathy Bates as civil liberties lawyer Dorothy Kenyon.

    this is a pretty standard biopic/law movie but not necessarily in a bad way, except for a few times where they say the name of the film and whenever RBG says her name it always feels like a wink
    I think grounding the movie in 2 periods in RBG's life focused it, and I liked how they incorporated the political movements of the 70s
    Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer were great and had great chemistry, Sam Waterston and Justin Theroux are so good at playing dicks, Cailee Spaeny did a great job too and it's always nice seeing Stephen Root

    Really felt this was special. The cast was amazing in their roles and I never felt things got dull.

    This was surprisingly really good, and I didn't think it was trite at all, which is a worry I always have with biopics. Really like how it was rooted in the 70s movements, and did a good job of making the legal arguments interesting (even if it wasn't as technical as I'd hoped, especially from the "bad" side).
