Release Date:January 10, 2019

Reviewer:Blake Leath
Genre(s):Drama, Biopic

Is it ironic, hypocritical, or neither that two of Hollywood's most gorgeous people star in a cerebral movie about discrimination on the basis of sex, or is my question sexist and an example of reverse discrimination, implying as it does that attractive people cannot act, be smart, or taken seriously?

I leave you to decide for yourself on the merits of their respective performances, but not before sharing my opinion, of course: They are lightweights boxing above their weights. Awkwardly above their weights.

The final two minutes are fantastic, but have little to nothing to do with what transpires for 118 consecutive minutes prior. They are fantastic solely because they are true; Notorious RBG achieved them.

All the rest is window dressing.
