Trailer For Netflix’s ‘Mitt’ Shows Romney Nearly In Tears On Election Night

Netflix released a trailer Wednesday for the upcoming Mitt Romney campaign documentary “Mitt” that includes footage of him nearly choking up as he and his family planned his concession speech on election night.

“Someone have a number for the President?” Romney is shown asking his aides. 

The trailer also shows behind-the-scenes footage of debate prep and the campaign trail, including Romney attempting to iron the sleeve of a tuxedo while wearing it. “Mitt” was directed by Greg Whiteley, who was granted extensive access to the Romney campaign.

“Mitt” premieres at the Sundance Film Festival Jan. 17. It debuts on Netflix Jan. 24. 

Watch the trailer below. 

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
