Young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) teams with her husband Marty (Armie Hammer) to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination.
Insider’s tip: “Well-paced and directed with gusto, On the Basis of Sex finds an accessible, near-perfect tone, balancing serious courtroom drama and frequent legal jargon with tastefully Hollywood-ized emotional embellishments” (Tomris Laffly, Time Out). Yolanda Machado, TheWrap, adds: “It’s Jones who really shines. She effortlessly embodies Ruth Bader Ginsburg with such aplomb that when she locks her steely eyes with the camera, you can feel it in your bones that this woman is about to change the world.” Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times: “While the structure occasionally feels a bit awkward, On the Basis of Sex has the kind of crowd-pleasing story that skims over any minor shortcomings; by its end, you’re ready to cheer.” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: “A serious movie that slowly earns its emotion and enlists our involvement. Even before the finish, it’s goosebumps all around.”
ON THE BASIS OF SEX has 1 win and 5 additional nominations for excellence.
