WPL Film Club @ Weston Public Library: On The Basis of Sex

August 25 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Please note that this film will NOT be screened at the AIC but at the Weston Library Community Room on Thursday, August 25th at 1:30.

ON THE BASIS OF SEX  2018  120 minutes

As a companion piece to the documentary RGB, this solid biopic stars Felicity Jones as Ruth Bader Ginsburg in two crucial periods of her life. The first part is set in 1956 when she was attending Harvard then Columbia Law Schools, graduating at the top of her class––only to be denied employment at the all-male law firms of the period. The second part jumps forward to 1970 when she and her husband appealed a tax case on the grounds of sexual bias against a man to set a precedent for overturning the layers of entrenched sexist legal code.

BE ADVISED–– This film is rated PG with smoking, drinking, profanity, references to sexuality, and fusty chauvinists in judicial robes.

Please RSVP by calling  (781) 786-6165
