One of our daughters and I went to see RBG, the documentary about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It was very good.

The movie featured archival footage, but also, interviews with the Justice, her friends and her family.

I was particularly moved by the details of her private life: losing her mother while young, suffering indignations from faculty as one of the few women in her law school class, and while studying, caring for an infant daughter and a husband going through cancer treatment. Many nights, she slept only a few hours.

The movie also covered the cases she litigated and interviewed some of her clients. She clearly has an incredible and brilliant mind.

It is a great movie. Here is a trailer.
