The Front Runner 15

Fri 25 – Thu 31 Jan


Following the rise and fall of politician Gary Hart (Jackman), once the name on everybody’s lips but now a footnote in the history of American politics.

1988, and the young and charismatic Hart has captured the imagination of young voters. Seen as the overwhelming favourite for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hart’s campaign is then side-lined by stories of extramarital affairs.

Looking at the corrupting nature of power, the merging of tabloid and political journalism, and the relationship of the press with those destined for the highest office - this is a timely, superbly acted and intelligent drama.

Dir: Jason Reitman
