Netflix Review: ‘Mitt’


“Mitt” is the new Netflix exclusive documentary that follows the life and career of Mitt Romney. The film mainly focuses on his presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012.

The documentary begins back in 2006 as Romney initially decides to run for president. After making that decision, he and his family travel across the nation to give speeches and to gain recognition and support from Americans. 

In the ’08 campaign, Romney ends up narrowly losing the Republican Party nomination for presidency to Sen. John McCain.

Not happy with how things went before, many of us are well aware that later Romney decided to run in the 2012 presidential election. This time, things went a little more in his favor, but in the end came up short in the election to Barack Obama.  

Whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or neither, this film is one that is worth watching. It’s interesting to get an up close look at what is involved in a presidential campaign.

Even though his campaign was unsuccessful after it was all said and done, it was a great experience for Romney and his family that not many others will have the opportunity to do.

 I can easily say that after watching what it takes to run a presidential campaign, I just don’t think I could deal with all of the stress. At times, it can be an emotional rollercoaster for the entire family.

Romney is a very charming, charismatic and likeable guy. He’s just not the best politician, and that’s why he’s not the president today.

No matter what political party you are, give this one a watch if you are interested in politics. It’ll give you a better understanding about running a campaign.
