The Front Runner
If you're not totally sick of politics altogether--or even if you are--come see The Front Runner staring Hugh Jackman in this biopic about former Senator Gary Hart, and more importantly, about the role of sensational journalism in politics. Personally, I just sort of remember his presidential bids and am interesting in learning how this man's story forever changed the history of politics. Hart served as a U.S. Senator from Colorado from 1975 to 1987, but is most famous for his two bids for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. During the latter primary campaign, he was considered the frontrunner, far ahead of eventual candidate Mike Dukakis, but his momentum became hobbled by accusations in the media of an extramarital affair. Hart famously challenged the media to, “Follow me around. I don’t care. I’m serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They’ll be very bored.” The tabloids accepted the challenge, and photographs of Hart with a woman named Donna Rice aboard a yacht brought a swift end to his candidacy. Cast also includes Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons, Mamoudou Athie, Josh Brener, Kaitlyn Dever, Tommy Dewey, Molly Ephraim, Spencer Garrett, Ari Graynor, Toby Huss, Mike Judge, Alex Karpovsky, Mark O’Brian, Sara Paxton, Kevin Pollak, Steve Zissis.
