"To learn more about his work, so I can be a more patient and understanding wife". (Ruth sarcastically answers the Dean of Harvard's question as to why she has taken a place at the university usually set aside for a man).
RBG is the 2018 release which gives an insight into Ruth Bader Ginsberg. This documentary gives an insightful (RBG sanctioned) view of possibly the most influential law maker in the history of the United States. The Basis of Sex (also RGB endorsed) is an entertaining, if not sanitised, version of Ruth and Marty Ginsberg's (Felicity Jones & Armie Hammer) early years and how the depth of their relationship both lovingly and professionally changed a law (constitutional) on the basis of sex. The case, Moritz v Commissioner of IRS, forms the foundation of the film. It's the case that began Ruth's determined efforts to seek change to U.S. discriminatory (sex based) laws. Jones and Hammer give the film a Hollywood chemistry. The two hours breeze by. It's a story worth telling, about a lady who to this day has a cult following. 9GUMS.
