On the Basis of Sex is a biographical legal drama that’s based on the life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg when she was still a young, struggling attorney and new mother, and how she faced numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights.
The film features a ground-breaking tax case that Ruth took on with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, a case she knew could change the direction of her career as well as the way the courts viewed gender discrimination. It also chronicles the couple’s storybook-like romance, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.
The screenplay was written by Daniel Stiepleman, the real Justice Ginsburg’s nephew, who says that he got the idea for the movie at the funeral of his Uncle Martin, who passed away in 2010. “One of his friends got up and gave the eulogy and within that eulogy was just a little bit of a story of the only case Ruth and Marty ever argued together, and I thought, ‘Wow, that is an incredible movie.’”
On the Basis of Sex stars Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Armie Hammer as Martin Ginsburg, as well as Justin Theroux, Jack Reynor and Kathy Bates.
On the Basis of Sex opens in cinemas on January 10, 2019 and is rated PG13 (Brief Coarse Language).
