Kenneth Chrisholm, writing for IMDb:

Mitt Romney, with the support of his family, made two major campaigns for the Office of the President of the United States in the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. This film takes an intimate portrait of the Romney family during these bids through the initial decision to run, the primaries and the general election itself as the former Governor of Massachusetts experiences the highs and lows of his ultimately unsuccessful campaign.

This film does an amazing job of painting Romney as a charismatic human being – something that was completely lacking from his public campaign. Had the material used in this documentary aired as a reality TV program in 2011/2012, there might well have been a different U.S. President. Netflix continues to put out fantastic original content.
