The Front Runner tells the story of Gary Hart, former senator of Colorado, who becomes the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1987. Hart's intelligence, charisma, and idealism makes him popular with young voters, leaving him with a seemingly clear path to the White House. All that comes crashing down when allegations of an extramarital affair surface in the media, forcing the candidate to address a scandal that threatens to derail his campaign and personal life.
The Front Runner is directed by Jason Reitman, based on the 2014 book All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid, written by Matt Bai. Reitman co-wrote the screenplay with Bai and Jay Carson. It stars Hugh Jackman, Vera Farmiga, J. K. Simmons, and Alfred Molina. The film is scheduled to begin a limited release on November 6, 2018. It will then expand on November 16, 2018, and go nationwide on November 21, 2018
