"Fall to Grace," a documentary about former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, will make its HBO debut March 28.
Produced and directed by Alexandra Pelosi ("Journeys with George"), who's, yes, the daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the film documents McGreevey's "transformative journey from closeted high-profile politician to openly gay spiritual adviser to women in prison," according to HBO.
More from Friday's press release:
"In 'Act One,' as he calls it, McGreevey married twice, fathered two daughters and reveled in the power and perks of political office. He recalls how the political limelight fed his ego and produced an addiction to adoration that ultimately 'brought no more permanent happiness than heroin provides a junkie.'
"In 'Act Two,' following his resignation and coming out, McGreevey lives a simpler life. "Fall to Grace' chronicles the spiritual quest that has led him to serve as a spiritual adviser to female inmates. McGreevey champions the women, prays with them, urges them to better themselves and hugs them like family.
"The documentary is a story about second chances, which McGreevey says everybody deserves. 'No one should be defined by the nadir of their existence,' he says. 'That shouldn’t define the entirety of their narrative.'"
