Netflix Doc Takes an Interesting Look at Mitt Romney (VIDEO)

This news came through my Twitter feed and surprisingly caught my attention.
The tweet referenced a Netflix exclusive documentary titled “MITT.” It’s a look at Mitt Romney in his failed quest to be the 45th president of the United States. What really caught my attention was the footage on the night he lost his bid for the presidency to Barack Obama in November 2012. The film covers a lot of ground in the run-up to that night as Romney campaigned and debated across the country.
Watching the trailer made me look at Mitt Romney is a slightly more flawed, yet human, individual. I only hope the full documentary can build on this. It’s amazing to see tears in his and his grown children’s eyes near the end of election night.
Brian Fung of The Washington Post took the words right out of my mouth when he said, “Mitt Romney could have really used this Netflix documentary about him in 2012.” Ain’t that the truth?!
