Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"ON THE BASIS OF SEX is ultimately less about one woman blazing a trail for herself and more about the slow, pointed deconstruction of an entire sexist social order." -- Grade: B
A.V. Club (19 Dec 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Jones applies herself soberly and energetically to cover the bases of Ginsburg's seriousness of purpose, initial career frustration and eventual clarity of vision as to how she can carve an important identity and public role for herself."
Todd McCarthy (8 Nov 2018, )
New York Times
"ON THE BASIS OF SEX does a brisk, coherent job of articulating what Ginsburg accomplished and why it mattered, dramatizing both her personal stake in feminist legal activism and the intellectual discipline with which she approached it."
A. O. Scott (24 Dec 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Jones and Hammer make an appealing couple, and they get strong support from the more colorful characters, like Kathy Bates as pioneering feminist attorney Dorothy Kenyon and Justin Theroux as Mel Wulf, legal director of the ACLU..."
(20 Dec 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n origin story that catches Ginsburg in the enthralling act of inventing herself, highlighting the ups and downs of the trailblazer’s formative period."
Peter Travers (24 Dec 2018, )
Variety
"[A] rousing origin story....Jones and Hammer share a charming on-screen chemistry..."
Peter Debruge (8 Nov 2018, )
