On the Basis of Sex

Felicity Jones stars as the Notorious RBG, but in a story you may not be familiar with. ON THE BASIS OF SEX is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg – then a struggling attorney and new mother – who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights as her career begins to rise.

When Ruth takes on a ground-breaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg (Armie Hammer), she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the touching romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.

Co-starring Kathy Bates, Justin Theroux and Sam Waterston, ON THE BASIS OF SEX is a rousing film about the genesis of an American icon.
