Reviews:
"RBG shines a strong, clear spotlight on female jurists who are out to change the world, one small step at a time." - 04/30/2018 Washington Post


"RBG is an unapologetic valentine to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but a sharp and spiky one too -- a celebration of the scrunchie-wearing octogenarian not just as a pop-culture folk hero and millennial meme but as a wife, a warrior, and a true iconoclast." -- Grade: A- - 05/02/2018 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "[Y]ou have to recognize the impact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has made to the fabric of our country. It is practically incalculable and completely invaluable." - 05/04/2018 Rolling Stone


"Through Ginsburg's interesting history you can track the eddies of the women's movement in the United States: her level-headed fight for legal equality, her staunch position on an increasingly conservative court. It helps that the filmmakers have pretty much unfettered access to Ginsburg..." - 05/04/2018 RogerEbert.com


"The film brims with absorbing anecdotes..." - 01/21/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"This spry celebration reveals that the real Ginsburg is neither beast nor badass, but an even-tempered, soft-spoken mediator -- not typically the traits that inspire rousing high-fives, but qualities that honor the slow, uphill slog of positive change." - 01/25/2018 Variety


4 stars out of 5 -- "RBG is an outright celebration of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the female justice who in battling gender equality laws for decades has changed the landscape for women working in America today." - 01/02/2018 Empire


"This solid documentary approaches its subject, supreme court justice and liberal idol Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with much the same calm eloquence that Bader Ginsburg has brought to her judgments over her career." - 01/06/2019 The Guardian
