Director Jason Reitman (Juno; Tully) tells the story of Gary Hart, whose campaign for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination was scuppered by revelations of an affair. The film also stars Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons and Alfred Molina.

The Front Runner is in UK/ROI cinemas January 25th, 2019.

Check out the first trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

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.
