Weiner

Documentary Films | 2016 | 100 minutes

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; the second, his chance of becoming the mayor of NYC. 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 keeps Huma close to her as she runs for president. In the documentary, we watch Huma dump her husband’s political career for Hillary’s.
