By the early '70s, law professor Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Felicity Jones) was all too familiar, in spite of her academic excellence, with professional hurdles stemming from her gender. She was steered to the case of a taxpayer denied an elder care write-off because he was an unmarried man--and Mimi Leder's engrossing biopic chronicles the first steps in the future Supreme Court Justice's path of tireless advocacy against sexual discrimination.
