A new film opening in Washington May 27 documents the self-inflicted downfall of former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner as he runs for mayor of New York in 2013.  

“As the media descends and dissects his every move, Weiner desperately tries to forge ahead, but the increasing pressure and crippling 24-hour news coverage halt his political aspirations,” the film’s description reads.
