Volunteers from a German non-profit risk the waves of the Mediterranean to pluck refugees from sinking rafts pushing off from Libya in the middle of the night. LIFEBOAT puts a human face on... See full summary »
Filmed and edited in intimate vérité style, this movie follows visionary medical practitioners who are working on the cutting edge of life and death and are dedicated to changing our thinking about both.
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. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.
It had its premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. See more »

Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
He is a very funny fellow.
She's a very nice person, she likes opera - what's not to like?... Except her views of the law, of course.
[Both Ginsburg and Scalia, as well as the crowd, laugh]

In what is essentially a nice companion piece to the Felicity Jones RBG biopic, On the Basis of Sex, the RBG documentary is a fairly straight forward telling of the marvelous accomplishments of the one and only, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It doesn't have the twists and turns of 3 Identical Strangers, the thrills of Free Solo, or the emotional gravitas of Won't You be My Neighbor, but there's something about Ginsburg that is must watch TV/movies. The charisma, heart, and sheer intelligence are virtually unmatched in the field she's in. Not to mention just how many groundbreaking accomplishments she had through the decades in changing the way the law works. This doc isn't as groundbreaking, but it sure is an interesting watch.
