Eliot Spitzer's meteoric rise turned into a precipitous fall when the New York Times revealed that Governor Spitzer - the paragon of rectitude - had been caught visiting high-priced call girls. As his powerful enemies gloated, his supporters questioned the timing of it all because as the Sheriff of Wall Street fell, so did the financial markets, in a cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy. With unique access to the escort world as well as friends, colleagues and enemies of the ex-Governor (many of whom have come forward for the first time) this film explores the hidden contours of hubris, sex, and power. From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney comes the true story of the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer – and it’s not at all what you read in the news.
