C: United States | R: 94 mins
Mitt achieves the objective of any worthwhile political documentary: it peels back the layers of spin, media coaching, and general disdain most have for politicians by showing Mitt Romney’s human side.
His connection to his family and ability to laugh at his gaffes, softens the image of the flip flopping politician born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Sadly you still don’t understand who he really is by the end. What you do realise is the name given to the presidential campaign of a ‘race’ is indeed true - seems as though a mistake can land a killer blow depending on the timing to either candidate.
The film reveals why Romney was seen as a moderate conservative initially, despite what came to be an ultimately hostile 2012 United States presidential campaign.
Final note: interesting cameo by Janine Turner - makes me dislike her even more.
