Back in July we got the first trailer for the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex (See it here). Focusing on Ginsburg early in her career as a lawyer fighting for equal rights for women, it’s been awhile since Felicity Jones has been allowed to stretch her dramatic muscles since she gained appeal as the lead in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story a couple years ago. Seeing her return with an award-worthy role seems right given how much she shined in The Theory of Everything in 2014.
Today, the second trailer released continues to demonstrate why she should be at the top of the list of potential nominees come the Academy Awards next year:
On the Basis of Sex co-stars Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Jack Reynor, Cailee Spaeny, Sam Waterson, and Kathy Bates. It is directed by Mimi Leder and is set to hit theaters Christmas Day.
