The 2018 documentary RBG is inspired by—not surprisingly—the life of U.S. Supreme Court Justice and the later-in-life pop culture icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The 85-year-old’s legacy thrives as she continues her role as one of the most prominent Supreme Court Justices of our time. Taking a stand for an array of voiceless minorities and respectfully dissenting on their behalf, Ginsburg continues to redefine the American way by fighting for change. Affectionately nicknamed “Notorious RBG,” she is known to many as a pop culture icon, but very few are aware of her personal journey toward becoming the phenomenon she is today.

Directed by Betsy West (Makers: Women Who Make America) and Julie Cohen (American Veteran, The Sturgeon Queens), RBG featuring interviews with Ginsburg and those closest to her, a whole slew of clips and pics highlighting the Supreme Court Justice’s untold story and the battles she’s faced in and outside of courtroom.

The film has received near-unanimous critical acclaim—it garnered a 94% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes based upon 115 published reviews—and an outstanding  box office take of $14 million when it was released theatrically in May, 2018.

The Blu-ray and DVD include the following bonus features:

  • Deleted/Extended Scenes
  • Additional Interviews
