Offering unprecedented insights into the life and legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, this film gives viewers a new perspective on how a girl born in Brooklyn in 1933 became a pioneering lawyer, the second woman -- and first Jewish woman -- to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, and a beloved pop culture icon. Enjoy it again on the big screen and stay for a talk-back with Amy in conversation with CNN's Senior Director of Development, Jon Adler.
