Ask Dr. Ruth

America’s favorite diminutive sex therapist is chronicled in this crowd-pleasing new documentary. Dr. Ruth Westheimer, with her thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, transformed the conversation around sexuality. As she approaches her 90th birthday and shows no signs of slowing down, Dr. Ruth revisits her painful past as Holocaust survivor and her unlikely path to a career at the forefront of the sexual revolution. Directed by Ryan White (Serena). (100 mins)

A crowd-pleaser!. Dr. Ruth is totally the Ruth Bader Ginsberg of sex. Ask Dr. Ruth has no trouble arguing that this spirited immigrant, who has happily played up her own persona for humor and silliness, has had a tangible impact that goes well beyond the punchlines or the explicit individualized advice.” – Daniel Feinberg, The Hollywood Reporter
