The Front Runner

In 1988, Senator Gary Hart (Hugh Jackman) was expected to clinch the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. Far and away the most popular candidate, with high approval among young voters, idealism, intelligence, and charisma out the wazoo, pundits were all but declaring Hart the next president. But when allegations of Hart conducting an extramarital affair surface, the resulting scandal becomes a blood bath as the media races to expose him.

Directed by Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno) and co-starring J.K. Simmons and Vera Farmiga, THE FRONT RUNNER tells a true story that changed the course of history, and became a prescient warning.
