One wouldn’t necessarily expect an octogenarian Supreme Court justice to become a celebrated pop culture touchstone, but hey – you can’t go predicting what people are going to do.

So it is with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose life and career are brought to the big screen in “RBG,” a documentary directed by Julie Cohen and Betsy West.
