Acclaimed Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary, RBG, Airing Tonight on CNN




Although still playing in cinemas throughout the country, the new Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary–simply called RBG–will air tonight (Sunday) on CNN. Tune in at 8 p.m. Here’s a quick synopsis:

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg ‘s exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen.

Writing in the New York Times, film critic A.O. Scott observes that the “movie’s touch is light and its spirit buoyant, but there is no mistaking its seriousness or its passion.

    Is the time given for this second showing of “RGB” tonight (9/09/2018) Eastern? I have a friend who lives in Colorado and she believes it’s at 8:00pm there. Last week, it was an hour earlier than the time given where I live (Chicago)! PLEASE CLARIFY!! Thanks!
