Over the last few years the world of politics at home and abroad has never been more interesting in a car crash, disbelieving, observing though your fingers way. Weiner grabbed our attention because initially it appears to be a fly on the wall mockumentary, along the lines of Ricky Gervais – The Office but it is jaw-droppingly real and toe-curlingly funny! Former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner’s catastrophic race for Mayor of New York City in 2013 is detailed in this behind-the-scenes documentary. Weiner became embroiled in his second widely publicised sexting scandal during the race, derailing his once-promising political career. Weiner is directed by Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg and received its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
