Hillary Clinton movie: Political advertising or free speech?

A panel of US Supreme Court Judges are deliberating over whether or not Hillary: the Movie is a political ad warranting regulation or an exercise in free speech that does not. So far, the justices agree that the film is biased, but are divided over whether or not it is a 'true' documentary. The ruling could have implications for other media such as campaign books like President Barak Obama's The Audacity of Hope.
