Have a Question? 'Ask Dr. Ruth' in First Trailer for New Documentary
"Say the word 'sex' with more emotion!" Magnolia Pictures has released the first official trailer for Ask Dr. Ruth, a documentary premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in just a few weeks. The film 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." She seems so spunky and spry, and still as witty and wise as ever. Enjoy.
