A year ago America was in the throes of the 2012 election season, between President Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Since the election, Romney has disappeared from the public spotlight. Netflix released a trailer for its new original documentary “MITT” that includes a personal look at Romney along the campaign trail and opens with an emotional moment on Election Day as he and his family come to realize that they’ve lost the race.
“Given unprecedented access by Mitt Romney and his family for six years, Mitt follows the former governor’s presidential aspirations, from Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008 and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012. Director Greg Whiteley (“New York Doll,” “Resolved”) travels alongside the campaign through interactions with potential voters, preparations for the debates, personal moments with his family and concluding with final presidential election night results”, said Netflix.
Mitt premieres January 24, 2014 in all Netflix territories.
