Based on a true story that changed everything, the new film from ‘Juno’ and ‘Tully’ director Jason Reitman chronicles American Senator Gary Hart’s presidential campaign in 1988 as it is derailed after he’s caught in a scandalous love affair.

THE FRONT RUNNER 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 side-lined 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.
