Movie tip: "On the Basis of Sex"
On the Basis of Sex
What I learned from watching “On the Basis of Sex”: don’t let your nephew be the one to write a screenplay about your life. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had an incredible 80-plus years so far. But this film starring Felicity Jones as the Supreme Court justice from a screenplay by RBG nephew Daniel Stiepleman too often feels hackneyed. (Did an overly nervous Bader Ginsburg have to fumble not once but twice with a microphone when arguing a case in front of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals?) And it lacks narrative momentum. You can sense this is his first produced screenplay. Watch the documentary “RBG” instead.
