'On The Basis Of Sex' is the true story of the Notorious RBG

July 18, 2018

Originally Natalie Portman was supposed to play this role and I think I'm the only one who's glad she was replaced by Felicity Jones. For these kinds of biopics, I think it's easier to imagine the younger version of someone real when we're not looking at a face that's immediately recognizable. I've tried to get some scoop on why the switch was made, but so far I've got nothing for you.

On The Basis of Sex looks like it will be an amazing movie. I teared up toward the end of the trailer and I'm not even embarrassed to admit it.

See what I mean? you can really get into Felicity as young RBG. They're not far off the mark in terms of physical resemblance, either. Ruth was a looker

The movie was written by RBG's nephew, Daniel Stiepleman, which makes me feel like it's going to be more real than Hollywood. Well, one can hope anyway. We have to wait until December for this one but if you don't want to wait that long to be inspired by her life, take yourself over to the Regal Arbor 8 Cinema at Great Hills and watch RBG. Seeing the photos of RBG as a younger woman, you can see how much Felicity really resembles her.
