Everyone has an opinion about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Admired and vilified in almost equal measure, she undeniably represents many different things to many different people. Spanning five consecutive decades of her fascinating career, Nanette Burstein’s comprehensive documentary series interweaves biographical chapters of Clinton’s life with previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage from her 2016 presidential campaign, resulting in an exceptionally intimate memoir.
With unprecedented access to the former first lady, senator, secretary of state, and presidential nominee, Burstein is given free reign to pose even the most difficult questions to Clinton, while probing her closest allies and political adversaries with the same intensity. The result is an unflinching look at the remarkable life and career of one of the most recognizable female figures in the history of American politics.
