Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday. Those looking to celebrate her life have two recent movies to help do just that. Here’s how to stream RBG and how to stream On the Basis of Sex. The 2018 movies take different approaches in portraying the Supreme Court Justice. Both of them, though, account for the unlikely celebrity she was.

Stream RBG: How to stream the RBG documentary

As Catherine Capellaro from the Isthmus pointed out in a positive review, “Ginsburg is probably the only justice to have inspired a rap name (“The Notorious RBG”), comic books and a sketch comedy impersonator.”

Calling the RBG documentary “a superhero movie with a twist,” she notes that it “begins with the voices of her male, conservative critics. They call her ‘witch,’ ‘evil-doer,’ ‘wicked’ and ‘a zombie.’ Their insults contrast perfectly with scenes of the octogenarian charming live television audiences and doing planks, squats and lifting weights in a gym — over a hip-hop track.”

You can stream RBG, the documentary released in 2018 by Magnolia Pictures, through Hulu or Amazon Prime Video. (With the latter, it’s renting from $2.99 or available to buy for $9.99.)

There are plenty of exclusives that make having access to the library worth having, including Good Omens, The Man in the High Castle, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Transparent, and The Tick. Best of all, if you’re a student, you can get six months free before you commit for the rest of the year.

Stream On the Basis of Sex: How to stream the RBG biopic movie

On the Basis of Sex is, according to the Independent’s Geoffrey Macnab, “a full-blown and satisfying courtroom drama.” He notes in his review Felicity Jones is a surprising choice for the lead.

“She seems a little too glamorous and a little too English to play the diminutive Brooklyn-born heroine,” he observes in his review. “Jones, though, relishes the role. She catches her character’s resilience and idealism as well as her pragmatism. Her Ruth never gives in to self-pity. If she is rebuffed, or loses a legal argument or faces calamity in her private life, she simply redoubles her efforts to succeed. She may seem mild-mannered and Miss Marple-like, but she is utterly relentless.

Showtime gives you access to all the movies and TV shows the premium cable channel has to offer. There are cheaper alternatives to gain access, but you need to subscribe to a secondary streaming service first. However, if you just want to watch Homeland, this is the quickest and the cheapest way to do so. Showtime hit shows are also available along with Ray Donovan, Shameless, and countless other great TV shows and movies.
