Watch: First Trailer for Netflix's Sundance Selected Documentary 'Mitt'

"I just can't believe you're gonna lose." Kicking off with an eerily silent room after realizing that Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was going to lose the 2012 election, the first trailer for the Sundance selected documentary Mitt has arrived. We just learned the doc will premiere on Netflix shortly after playing for audiences at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival next month. The documentary seems to paint a narrative that looks at the man and the challenge of running for president without any sort of liberal or conservative slant, which would be a nice change of pace from the bias media we're all used to seeing. Watch below now!
Here's the first trailer for Greg Whitely's documentary Mitt from Netflix:
With unprecedented access to Mitt Romney and his family for six years, Mitt follows the former governor's presidential aspirations, from Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008 and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012. Director Greg Whiteley (New York Doll, Resolved) travels alongside the campaign through interactions with potential voters, preparations for the debates, personal moments with his family and concluding with final presidential election night results. King of Kong director Seth Gordon executive produces the film which hits Netflix in all territories where the service is available on January 24th next year at 12:01am PT after playing the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Guess they decided not to focus on moments like this.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRN9Y5Nvdqk

Bet it ends with Breakfast Club's "Don't you - forget about me" Too late.

Regardless of political party, I always thought it'd be cool to get an in-depth behind the scenes look at what the candidates go through during the elections. On my list for sure.

Is it possible that Mitt didn't fully grasp what he was getting himself into with this last election? I guess that's going to be answered in the doc, but that's the way it felt during the run-up to the election. I voted for Obama, but that doesn't mean I didn't think Mitt was a nice guy, and I'm excited to get a more "real" look at him.

Yep, agreed. I also preferred Obama, but he did seem like a nice guy - even if somewhat disconnected from the lives of ordinary people.

I'll definitely be checking this out.

Thank you to Mitt and family for letting us get to see them as a family dealing with the enormous process of running for president.Hats off to them! I feel if Mitt didin't have to bend so much to the pressures the ultra conseratives and Tea party , he might have won the election. Had he owned up to his achievements with his own universal healthcare in Massachusettes instead of hiding the fact to please the teaparty I would have voted for him.

I don't have Netflix but may have to sign up to watch this. No matter what side you're rolling with, I'm pretty sure you need to have ballz of steel to make it through the end. Getting a behind the scenes look at Romney's campaign will definitely answer a lot of questions people had. Would be nice to see something like this from Obama's angle.
