Some of the reviews I read about the movie, On the Basis of Sex, the biopic about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, seemed focused on the fictional parts of the movie. As though the reviewer wanted this movie to be a documentary, which would be historical, and then was dismayed to discover it's . . . wait for it . . . a movie.
As a movie, it deals with a principle that shaped and formed Ruth Bader Ginsburg's obsession with equality for all under the law. And what is wrong with that, I ask you? Also, it brings painfully to mind all the things that women were not allowed to do in the 1960s / 1970s.
Further, when a friend down the street stopped by my house yesterday, I mentioned to her that I planned to see this movie after our open houses on Sunday. My friend asked, "Who is that?" How did this woman get to be in her 70s and not know Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Can't blame the island for it because my friend grew up in Roseville and moved to Hawaii a year or so ago. Just proof that there are people who do not know. As mindboggling as that might seem.
Well, you can read more in my personal blog today at this link: One of the Movies About Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
