“Ask Dr. Ruth” chronicles the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America’s most famous sex therapist. The narrative shifts between Dr. Ruth’s childhood as an orphan of the Holocaust and a playful retelling of her career highlights. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. Her quick wit will keep you laughing throughout the film along with tender moments as she reflects on the loss and upheaval she endured as a young woman in 1940’s Europe.
