About the Film
On the Basis of Sex is inspired by the true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg—then a struggling attorney and new mother—who faces adversity and numerous obstacles in her fight for equal rights throughout her career.
When Ruth takes on a groundbreaking tax case with her husband, attorney Martin Ginsburg, she knows it could change the direction of her career and the way the courts view gender discrimination. The film also chronicles the storybook-like romance between Ruth and Marty, a partnership that succeeded both personally and professionally.
…On the Basis of Sex…is directed by Mimi Leder (The Leftovers, Deep Impact) from an original screenplay by Daniel Stiepleman.
On the Basis of Sex stars Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name, The Social Network) as Marty Ginsburg, Ruth’s husband and legal partner. Rounding out the cast are Justin Theroux (The Girl on the Train, The Leftovers), Jack Reynor (Detroit), Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale, Pacific Rim: Uprising), Stephen Root (Get Out, All the Way), with Sam Waterston (Law & Order) and Oscar-winner Kathy Bates (Misery).

About the Film
Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.
Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.
The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).
It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
