An Intimate Look at Mitt

"The dramatic collapse of Romney's six-year quest for the presidency is revealed in a new documentary, MITT, a rare, intimate look into how a family endures the 24-7 psycho-drama that is a modern U.S. presidential campaign," the Washington Post reports.

"The film, which premiered here Friday night as part of the Sundance Film Festival and will be available on Netflix starting Jan. 24, provides a stark contrast to the stilted, robotic caricature of Romney the politician. It shows him as a three-dimensional figure -- devoted to the Mormon faith that he played down on the campaign trail, capable of flashes of raw emotion and often harboring doubts about his political abilities."

The Week: "He is both self-aware and clueless, caring and indifferent, likable but hardly magnetic. His slippery reputation made him, in his own words, a 'flawed candidate' -- and yet in a modest way, he also represents an antidote to the cynicism that has poisoned American politics."
