Sundance Film Festival

Last weekend, Mr. Nielson and I went to the documentary "Mitt"
 directed by Greg Whiteley at the Sundance Film Festival.

It is a wonderful film about a wonderful family and really, 
I didn't feel like it was about politics at all.
In my opinion, the film is about a man and his family, 
his devotion to country and to God.  
The relationships Mitt has with his sons and his wife Ann
throughout the film is what makes the film so moving and real.
Since I have had the honor of knowing the Romney family, the movie was very dear
 to my heart as I watched emotions of those I know 
and care about being portrayed on screen.
 Mr. Nielson and I pose with Ann and Mary Romney at the swanky post-party...
how about Mary's luscious pink lips...wowza
 After it was all over, Mr. Nielson and I were excited to have a
 few quite moments to meet the director and his sweet family.
We chatted about some of his experiences throughout his 6 year's following 
and filming the Romney family.  We talked about his sweater and how it 
belonged to his late father and was his "lucky charm".
I also enjoyed talking to his beautiful wife Erin and 2 very bright children.
"Mitt" comes out on Netflix January 24th.  You'll love it.
