    • Excerpt: Leder returns to the big screen with an effort that feels intended for the small screen. While it tells a great story…”On the Basis of Sex” feels like a Lifetime movie.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: By focusing on a tax case, On the Basis of Sex doesn’t stir the emotions as it should. The chronicle doesn’t seem vital enough for anyone other than her most ardent admirers in need of an idealized portrait.

    • Excerpt: Mimi Leder has crafted a solid biopic – not just for the modern era, but for future generations who will carry on the torch of Ginsburg’s wisdom, tenacity, and humanity.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Coasts on the awesomeness of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a way unadventurous if solidly crowd-pleasing. But the depiction of her incredibly supportive marriage to a feminist man is intensely satisfying.

    • Excerpt: [Its convention never] detracts from the film’s purpose of getting its message out about how important a figure Ginsburg is to America’s hope for real egalitarianism.

    • Excerpt: Empowering but a conventional biopic at best.
