THE FRONT RUNNER
“Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart for Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman in the new 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.”
There’s also a first official poster, take a look below:
Gary Hart was going to be President.
Instead he changed American Politics forever.
So, an extramarital affair was cause for dropping out of a presidential race back in the days? Well, I guess things have changed then… lol!
The movie The Front Runner will be released in theaters on November 7, 2018.
