    A good documentary uses judicious editing to make an important addition to your knowledge of a subject, and Mitt does so in a big way.

    Mitt humanizes a man who was never nearly as good with his target audience as he was with his family.

    This is neither an indictment nor an endorsement but simply a refreshing departure from the combative tone of contemporary politics and political coverage.

    How ironic to realise that the greatest Mitt Romney campaign ad should arrive too late to save him.

    Although the access is intimate, what emerges is not particularly surprising.

    Although Whiteley's unrestricted there-ness effortlessly yields an avuncular striver... it means little when the viewpoint is so hermetic.

    I never thought the manufacturing and sale of catchers mitts could ever be so exciting. The best moments of the movie are when you see the true impact that mitts have had on the civil rights movement. Full Review »

    During 2012 most voters never got to see the personal side of Romney like they had Obama so he seemed more closed off an impersonal. This documentary fixes that, we see Romney with his family, telling jokes, feeling anxiousness and doubt. Making the man who many called a robot seem.... Human. Full Review »

    Interesting documentary that manages to humanize a politician who, somehow, never managed to connect with the voters. The film is surprising because it demonstrates how closely the candidate was connected to his family throughout what must have been a very challenging and stressful experience. This film is a great companion to Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Full Review »
