The Contenders #51 – On the Basis of Sex (2018)
The early legal life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg gets the biopic treatment in 2018’s “On the Basis of Sex,” and the Addington siblings are here to cross examine it all: from Felicity Jones to Armie Hammer, the difficulties of writing movies about your own family, and the live-wire Justin Theroux, who might just be in a different movie. Can the movie overcome the generic biopic beats? How does it place RBG in the trajectory of feminism? And how excited were we to see a movie from the director of “Deep Impact”? Only one way to find out!
