All rise for Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On the Basis of Sex details the Supreme Court justice's early days studying and practicing law amid sexism and discrimination, and an A-list cast is primed to bring each key player's role in Ginsburg's journey to the big screen.
With The Theory of Everything and Rogue One's Felicity Jones at the lead, the Focus Features film, directed by Mimi Leder, delves into the 1971 Reed v. Reed case, in which Ginsburg argued for equal protection under the law for men and women. And in doing so, the project also highlights the unequal treatment Ginsburg received as a woman pursuing justice.
In anticipation of the biopic, which hits theaters Dec. 25, The Hollywood Reporter breaks down who's playing whom.
