Weiner

As everyone knows, sexts brought Anthony Weiner’s brilliant political career to an end not once but twice. The first time, in 2011, was not fatal; the second time, in 2013, was. The first time cost him his seat in Congress (where he made fiery speeches and attacked the GOP like a bulldog)—the second, his chance of becoming the mayor of New York City. The documentary is about his second and final fall...But the real star of this very entertaining documentary is Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin. Her face, her body, her movements are a ship that crosses the crises of her marriage with admirable steadiness. Her husband has only a poor idea of her greatness. Hillary Clinton, however, knows the real value of this woman, which is why she is keeping Abedin close to her as she runs for president. In the documentary, we watch Abedin dump her husband’s political career for Hillary’s.
