This was not what I expected, it's even better.
She's kind of a hardass and I didn't even know!
I was prepared for a light hearted Dr. Ruth montage of people asking questions.
What we get is a deeper look into her past including diary entries while orphaned in Switzerland during the war. That part might make you cry among other things.
Overall we see a woman who doesn't let anything drag her down as she's changing the culture and how we talk about sex today.
The film was well made, it does kind of end without a conclusion, or at least that's what it felt like to me. Oh, and the parts with the child voice-over reading the diary was weird without a German accent.
Should you watch it?
Yeah! It's not about sex as much as it's about her life and career. The woman is 91 and still writing books. We all have something to learn from this film.
