The decision to time the opening of the scathing takedown of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to the Republican and Democratic political conventions seems to be paying off.
Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has added another win: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party has quickly become the top-grossing documentary of the year to date at the U.S. box office, amassing $5.2 million in its first dozen days.
That’s the best showing of any documentary since Amy Winehouse doc Amy earned $8.2 million following its release on July 3, 2015. And among 2016 docs, Hillary’s America easily trumps the $4.1 million grossed by Imax documentary A Beautiful Planet — or the $3.8 million grossed by Michael Moore’s Where to Invade Next.
Among political documentaries, Hillary’s America already ranks No. 10.
