The Front Runner

Preview by Jack Foley

THE Front Runner is out on Digital on May 6 and DVD on May 20, 2019.

Hugh Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart in this thrilling drama following 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.

But 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 leaving a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage.

The film, directed by Jason Reitman, also stars Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons and Alfred Molina.

The Front Runner is rated 15 and has a running time of 1 hour and 49 minutes.
