Felicity Jones in Powerful International Trailer for 'On the Basis of Sex'
"You must see the opportunity this case represents! For men and women, both." Entertainment One UK has revealed an international trailer for On the Basis of Sex, the gripping film about the early days of iconic Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Felicity Jones plays RBG, and Armie Hammer plays her husband Marty, in a new film by director Mimi Leder (of The Peacemaker, Deep Impact, Pay It Forward). This film is a compliment to the documentary about her, titled simply RBG now playing in theaters. The full cast also features Justin Theroux, Cailee Spaeny, Kathy Bates, Stephen Root, Jack Reynor, Sam Waterston, and Francis X. McCarthy. Focus will be releasing On the Basis of Sex in theaters nationwide on Christmas Day, a strong reminder of how important equality and a female voice is in the Supreme Court.
Here's the official international trailer for Mimi Leder's On the Basis of Sex, direct from YouTube:
The story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights and what she had to overcome in order to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. On the Basis of Sex is directed by American filmmaker Mimi Leder, a veteran producer and director of the films The Peacemaker, Deep Impact, Pay It Forward, and Thick as Thieves previously. The screenplay is written by Daniel Stiepleman. This is expected to first premiere at film festivals in the fall. Focus Features will release Leder's On the Basis of Sex in theaters nationwide starting December 25th, Christmas Day this year. Looking good? Thoughts?

Looks good. Jones looks good as Ginsburg (but nothing like the real one).

Of course, it's uplifting story, but ... Films somehow always recreate today's dilemmas through the past, rewakening its patterns from the past and the contemporary ones. While the history has pretty obviously changed ...

Looking forward to this. Hopefully one day in my lifetime, gender won't be an issue - no difference in pay, new-child leave, attitudes about who takes off for sick kid, etc.
