Sundance Selected Doc 'Mitt' to Premiere on Netflix During Festival

After just being named as one of the feature documentary premieres at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival today, Greg Whiteley's film Mitt will also be hitting Netflix while the festival unfolds in Park City, Utah. As the title indicates, the documentary provides an intimate, rarely seen, behind-the-scenes look at the run of major presidential candidate Mitt Romney. King of Kong director Seth Gordon also executive produced the film which begins in Christmas of 2006 and runs all the way to his concession speech in 2012 after losing the election to President Barack Obama. Hopefully it's more of a journey into the difficulty and madness of running for President of the United States as opposed to just propaganda one way or the other.
Here's the poster for Greg Whiteley's documentary Mitt, debuting on Netflix next month:
Filmmaker Greg Whitely says, "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 7 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." The film will hit Netflix in all territories where the service is available on January 24th next year at 12:01am PT after the film has premiered for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
