I traveled to Portland, MA today to see RBG a documentary about Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life and work. I knew going in that she was an important person, but coming out I couldn't help but tear up at all the hard work she's achieved for people and especially for women to have equal rights to a man. I love documentaries that show how history might've been different if one person didn't stand up and fight for others. I'm so grateful for all the cases she reported on. I won't begin to tell you I understand the law or anything like that, but from what I heard and saw in the documentary supreme court justice Ginsburg is truly a social justice warrior. At 86 she has a healthier lifestyle than I and it puts things in perspective. It also shows that no matter what age you can make a difference in this world. I mean for example she didn't even get nominated into working in the supreme court until she was in her 60s! Bill Clinton certainly did a lot of questionable things during his presidency, but I can definitely say allowing her to serve as one of the smartest most impactful things he could've done as president.
Can I also point out that no major theater is playing this movie! I don't understand. What a loss of profit for AMC and other theaters in the Boston area. It's not that I couldn't find the movie playing in Boston, but they were at all the local independently owned one. Thank goodness for that.
