Ask Dr. Ruth

Cherished, charming and charismatic, this 4ft 7” powerhouse captures your heart. The big question is why now at 90 did this non political wonder woman choose to do a documentary? Three reasons: she enjoys the filmmaker Ryan White (fabulous body of work), as an orphan of the holocaust she can’t standby while children are being separated from their parents and, because the holocaust did happen and can’t be forgotten -it’s her testament. For me the question was how did she come to her career, especially given her background. This documentary doesn’t disappoint, with a nice balance between personal and business. Wonderful animation helps illustrate touching/difficult moments. You can’t help but fall in love with, be awed and inspired by Dr. Ruth. (Hulu picked it up). Date night worthy for nostalgia and discussion.
