Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables, The Greatest Showman) stars as charismatic politician Gary Hart in the thrilling drama The Front Runner. The film follows the rise and fall of Senator Hart, who captured the imagination of young voters and was considered the overwhelming front runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination when his campaign was sidelined by the story of an extramarital relationship with Donna Rice. As tabloid journalism and political journalism merged for the first time, Senator Hart was forced to drop out of the race—events that left a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage. Also starring Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons and Alfred Molina. Directed and co-written by Jason Reitman (Tully, Up in the Air, Juno), based on the book All the Truth Is Out by Matt Bai.
