MOVIE REVIEW

The worst part about On the Basis of Sex is that the marketing got it all wrong. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has never been more popular nor widely known, and yet Focus Features didn’t name the movie Ginsburg or something that actually told you what it was about. Sure, the title relates to the future Supreme Court justice’s battle to eliminate gender discrimination from federal law, but every time I walked by a movie poster of Felicity Jones looking pretty in high heels, I had to remind myself what the movie was about and rarely had much urge to go out of my way to see it.
