About the series:

 

WVIFF Underground Cinema Presents Movies That Matter Mondays – Each month, we will work with a community organization to show an issue-oriented and compelling film relating to their mission. At one screening of the film, the community organization will participate in a discussion with the audience. For this film, the discussion event was set up by the sponsors and all seats have been reserved.  See: www.facebook.com/events/157759151733127/ for more information. The film will show for the rest of the month on Mondays.

 

What the Critics are Saying:

 

RBG is a jaunty assemblage of interviews, public appearances and archival material, organized to illuminate the temperament of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her accomplishments so far. Full review

A.O. Scott
The NYTimes

 

What makes it memorable is its portrait of a woman with an exceptional intellect, to be sure, but also a lifelong capacity for staggering amounts of minutely detailed, unswervingly purposeful work. Full review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

 

Rather than focusing on personality, however, the bulk of “RBG” has to do with its subject’s lifelong fight against gender discrimination. Full review

Michael O’Sullivan
Washington Post

 

This riveting, surprisingly touching documentary reveals how the quiet, intense Ginsburg became one the most iconic Supreme Court justices in American history. Full review
