This lively film portrait (how can it not be?) 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 through her numerous television appearances and countless books on the topic. As she approaches her 90th birthday, this peppy workaholic maintains a schedule that would exhaust someone half her age. In this highly entertaining film, she revisits her painful past and unusual career trajectory (including a stint as an Israeli sniper) on her unlikely path to the forefront of the sexual revolution. Director: Ryan White. (US 2019) 100 min.
