Ask Dr. Ruth

A pioneer in the field of sex therapy, Dr. Ruth Westheimer became a household name in the ’80s and ’90s. At 90 years old, she hasn’t stopped working – and still promises the best sex you’ve ever had if you listen to her.

Don’t let her small stature fool you. Standing at under five feet tall, Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a force. Filmmaker Ryan White captures Dr. Ruth’s exuberant and snappy personality as she hopscotches from speaking engagements to TV and radio appearances. Her infectious energy is coloured with an almost arresting openness that is joyous and non-judgmental, and the affable rapport between filmmaker and subject is a welcome source of laughter. Alongside her optimism, however, are storybook-like animations that bring Dr. Ruth’s childhood as an orphan of the Holocaust to life. The tragic loss of being separated from her parents and never seeing them again shaped how she would embrace the world.

Ryan White, USA, 2019, 100 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With dr. Ruth Westheimer, Susan Brown, Jonathan Capehart, Leora Einleger.
