Hugh Jackman is the charismatic politician Gary Hart in this movie by director Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno). The movie follows the rise and fall of this senator who stole the hearts of young voters and became the favourite to become the Democrats’ candidate in the presidential elections of 1988. His campaign however faltered when his extramarital affair with Donna Rice was exposed. Political and tabloid journalism crossed paths for the first time and Hart eventually had to withdraw his campaign. The events would have a huge and longlasting impact on American politics. Vera Farmiga (The Departed, Up In The Air), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Juno) and Alfred Molina (Chocolat, Frida) can also be seen in leading roles. The Front Runner was written by Matt Bai, Jay Carson and Jason Reitman, based on the book All The Truth Is Out by Matt Bai.
This movie will play at Louis Hartlooper Complex or Springhaver. Location and time to be announced.
