Sundance 2014: Mitt

Monday, we continue our Sundance coverage with Greg Whiteley's new documentary, MITT. Whiteley filmed for six years with unfettered access to the Romney clan, from their 2006 Christmas dinner through the presidential candidate's loss in 2012. The film is less about politics though than a portrait of a family navigating the long hours, stress and disappointments of a campaign. Whiteley joins Doug to talk about the human side of politics and the Mitt Romney voters didn't see.

MITT premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival. There are still screenings Monday and Wednesday through Saturday in Park City. For a full schedule, visit the Sundance Film Festival 2014 web site.

MITT will also premiere on Netflix before the end of Sundance. It will be available on Friday, January 24th.
