There's a documentary on badass Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: 'RBG'

Here's a film I'll be lining up to see. It's the story of U.S. Supreme Court Justice/hero/dissenter Ruth Bader Ginsburg and it will be told on the big screen in the upcoming documentary, RBG.
At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon.

RBG will be in limited theatrical release starting on May 4.
