Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer
This documentary feature takes explores at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Nicknamed "The Sheriff of Wall Street," when he was NY's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America's largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as governor, with the largest margin in the state's history, many believed Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation's first Jewish President. Then, shockingly, Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Spitzer -- the paragon of rectitude -- had been caught seeing prostitutes. The film explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power. Rated R for some sexual material, nudity and language.
