McGreevey's marriage and political career were soon over, and outside of the public eye, he began following a different path. In the documentary Fall To Grace, filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi offers a look into the life of Jim McGreevey eight years after he left office: a man of renewed religious faith, he serves as a counselor, mentor, and spiritual advisor to the female prisoners at the Hudson County Correctional Center, and is in a stable, long-term relationship with another man as he strives to serve those who need help rather than chasing power and privilege.
