Dyke Movie & Dinner Night 2019 | WEEKLY | CBR
A casual and friendly group that welcomes all like-minded women in Canberra to meet weekly for coffee, a movie and dinner.
Coffee Movie Dinner Movie Group - Tues 12 Feb - On the Basis of Sex
This week we are meeting in Civic, 6pm at Dendy Canberra, Level 2, North Quarter, Canberra Centre. Newcomers can find the movie group sitting at the cinema cafe at one of the round tables.
The movie starts at 6.45pm with dinner afterwards upstairs Asian Tapas, Garema Place around 8.30pm. Due to the later finish times of movies, the organiser may need to run ahead to the restaurant to ensure the kitchen will stay open.
Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer star in On the Basis of Sex, the inspiring true story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a passionate and dedicated lawyer who brings a case before the US Supreme Court in 1975 that could change women’s lives for the better. Her claim: that the law discriminates on the basis of gender.
At the heart of Ruth’s journey is a moving romance with her husband Marty (Armie Hammer) and a poignant relationship with her daughter, who embodies a new generation of women following in Ruth’s footsteps. As Ruth struggles to be heard, even hired, in a profession dominated by men, Marty becomes her greatest ally in a partnership built on love and equality.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was later appointed Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, a position she holds to this day. See where her story began in this stirring, heartfelt drama.
The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a ground-breaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg's 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court.
