Jones posed with costar Armie Hammer and On the Basis of Sex director Mimi Leder, who was thrilled her film was opening the AFI Fest. “As one of the first women ever admitted to the AFI Conservatory, it’s particularly meaningful to me that On the Basis of Sex will open AFI Fest 2018,” said Leder. “My time at the Conservatory was a life-changing experience and informed my creative journey. I am forever grateful. The origin story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in this 25th anniversary year of her appointment to the Supreme Court, couldn’t come at a more important moment in our history nor be shown at a more relevant place than AFI Fest, a symbol of artistic integrity and the enduring power of cinema. I hope girls and young women in particular will see the film and find inspiration to realize their own unlimited potential.”
