The hottest documentary of the year so far, 'Weiner' is an entertaining and critically-praised account of a political trainwreck. New York congressman Anthony Weiner had a promising career, but he was forced to resign after the press got a hold of an image of his crotch that he Tweeted to a female fan. The scandal rocked Weiner's marriage to Huma Abedin, but she stayed with him. This intimate documentary follows the disgraced candidate as he runs for mayor of New York City, in an attempt to regain his lost political glory. Andrew and Phil both liked 'Weiner' and the two discuss how the film manipulates the candidate's story to make us feel certain attitudes to this flawed man.
