Description

Ask Dr. Ruth chronicles the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, a Holocaust survivor who became America's most famous sex therapist. With her diminutive frame, thick German accent, and uninhibited approach to sex therapy and education, Dr. Ruth transformed the conversation around sexuality. As she approaches her 90th birthday and shows no signs of slowing down, Dr. Ruth revisits her painful past and unlikely path to a career at the forefront of the sexual revolution.


"The value in the documentary lies in Westheimer's personal story, which is pretty amazing."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"Westheimer provides an essential public service, which the film, an affectionate tribute to her life and work, continues."
- Chicago Reader
