Weiner: The Documentary on Anthony Weiner

The title says it all. This hilarious and mesmerizing documentary won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It charts the fall and rise of Congressional representative Anthony Weiner, whose life was destroyed by a sex scandal in 2011. Two years after grabbing headlines with his sexting shenanigans, Weiner decided to run for New York City Mayor. Directors Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg were granted unfettered 24/7 access to the candidate. Shocking virtually no one, Wiener's campaign broke down almost immediately with even more allegations of sexual misconduct. Fortunately, the filmmakers were there to capture every schadenfreude-filled moment. 100 minutes Unrated.
