Description

A chronicle of 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 has transformed the conversation around sexuality since the early 1980s. 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. (Critics’ Choice winner; selection at Sundance, HotDocs)

“Those looking for a feel-good movie, about a famous personality living a remarkable life in the service of helping others, don’t need to look further” – Andrew Parker, The Gate
