As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg celebrates her 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court, director Mimi Leder's "On the Basis of Sex" dramatizes a flagship case in the early years of Ginsburg's law career.

"[B]eautifully argues the importance of Ginsburg's work prior to the Supreme Court, and is a lovely tribute to the woman who would become the Notorious RBG." --Tribune News Services
