After a humiliating exit from political life, Anthony Weiner reentered the public arena with an ambitious run for mayor of New York. But what began as a hopeful opportunity to redeem himself to his family and voters quickly spiraled out of control as new sexting allegations came to light and a media frenzy formed around his campaign. Allowing unbelievable access to filmmakers Josh Kriegman (former Weiner aide) and Elyse Steinberg, the Sundance award-winning Weinter is a captivating must-see that weaves through the spectacle, campaign maneuvers, public meltdowns, and private moments for a uniquely honest and entertaining story.
