Mitt Romney Documentary to Premier at Sundance and on Netflix

Netflix will premier a documentary about Mitt Romney’s two failed bids for the White House in January.

The documentary Mitt, directed by Greg Whiteley, follows Romney from Christmas in 2006 to his consession speech in 2012. The film will also have its premier at the Sundance Film Festival.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Given unprecedented access by Romney and his family, Whiteley travels alongside the campaign through interactions with potential voters, preparations for the debates, personal moments with his family and concluding with election night results.

Seth Gordon, who got his start directing the documentary The King of Kong, is executive producing.”

Added Whiteley: It feels like a full-circle moment to premiere this movie at Sundance. I first met and filmed the Romney family in Park City in 2006 as they gathered to discuss whether Mitt should run for president. Over the next seven years, I couldn’t believe I was filming inside rooms and situations I had no business being in. Now that I’ve finished, I couldn’t be more pleased to share this experience with audiences around the world through Netflix.”
