The Front Runner will be previewed, followed by a conversation with director Jason Reitman and Hugh Jackman, who plays Senator Gary Hart.
Based on Matt Bai’s book, All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid, this riveting docudrama is about the man who almost became the U.S. president in 1988. Instead, he was the subject of scandal and massive media scrutiny after marital infidelity was discovered. Co-starring Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons, and Alfred Molina as Ben Bradlee, The Front Runner tackles politics, journalism, and morality.
