*PURE Summer Slam 2019*

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it, from fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly arrived in America. Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman’s untold story in BECOMING DR. RUTH. Filled with the humor, honestly, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth,” America’s most famous sex therapist.

“[Dr. Ruth’s] story is certainly a stirring one…[and this is] an illuminating portrait.” – NY Times
