Mitt
2014
Following his bid to win the U.S. presidency, most Americans believed they knew Mitt Romney. With unprecedented access, this documentary tracks Romney from 2006 and his first effort to win the Republican nomination, through the 2012 elections, revealing the man behind the sound bites in an authentic view the public rarely glimpsed during the media frenzy of a national campaign.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

From its glowing reviews, I was expecting some real insight into Mitt Romney, to see him as just a regular person instead of the practiced candidate on stage. And the documentary provided that, but it turns out that the real Mitt Romney is pretty much like you would imagine him: Very smart, sincere in his political beliefs, very family-oriented, praying often, sleepy on long flights, hustling to eat quickly between campaign stops, fussy about his hair, and happy to tussle with the grandkids. The closest thing to a surprise was seeing him pick up his family's trash around the hotel room several times as if he has OCD. It's not a bad movie, but it's a shame that it filmed the Romneys for six years and doesn't really have anything to reveal about them.
