From IMDb: “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.”

Poster Rating: B-

Review: It’s not the most visually daring design, but the decision to make her a giant against the backdrop of the Supreme Court is a nice touch.

Trailer Rating: B / B

Review: (#1) Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the most important justices ever installed on the Supreme Court. Her life story would make a fascinating movie. Perhaps this will be the one, but the trailer isn’t great. It’s good, but it could be so much better.

(#2) The same bland competence of the first trailer evinces itself in this second trailer that continues to position the narrative as a significant one without feeling enticing as a result.

Oscar Prospects:

There may be a push to give the film some Oscar consideration, but will the film be good enough for it?
