U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans—until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career. Includes pre-recorded Q&A with directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West.

Thanks to Magnolia Pictures, proceeds will be donated to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, which was co-founded by Justice Ginsburg in 1972.
