TORONTO (AP) - A documentary about Sarah Palin depicts the Tea Party idol and former vice presidential candidate as a woman with enormous personal charm but merciless vindictiveness.

Director Nick Broomfield’s “Sarah Palin: You Betcha!”, which is playing at the Toronto International Film Festival, offers a glimpse of the former Alaska governor from interviews with family, including her parents, and former friends and associates.

Palin comes across as a woman known for ruthlessly firing people and holding spiteful grudges, leaving many Alaskans worried to talk about her for fear of reprisals, whether from Palin or her supporters.

The film screened Friday for reporters ahead of its official festival premiere Sunday.
