Ask Dr. Ruth (2019)

We're in a new golden age for mass-appeal documentary film. Movies like Won't You Be My Neighbor?, RBG, Free Solo and Minding the Gap set records and won acclaim in the last couple years, and Ask Dr. Ruth is of a piece with the rest of them -- the story of the famously feisty, diminutive therapist who taught America in the 1980s how to talk about sex with unflinching and enthusiastic candor. As her 90th birthday approaches, the film explores her beginnings from her early radio show, “Sexually Speaking,” which became a surprise hit, to her TV appearances and series that made her a cultural touchstone, to the story of her birth in German in 1928 and the awful choices her parents made to help her escape the horror of the Holocaust. A loving and intimate portrait of a tiny-yet-titanic popular figure, Ask Dr. Ruth reveals the pain and complexity behind a face we all know.
