WEINER is a documentary about US politician Anthony Weiner's failed attempt to run for Mayor of New York City in 2013.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

Sex

There is sight of photographs of a naked man, with his genitalia digitally obscured. In one photograph a man appears to have an erection beneath his underwear. There are verbal references - often comic - about the appearance of his penis and getting an erection.

In a comic sketch there is brief sight of a dildo. In other scenes there are verbal references to sexualised messages that were exchanged between two adults. A woman is revealed to be involved in the pornography industry, with accompanying imagery from a pornographic website, although strong detail is obscured.
