Politics can be a crazy business and Hugh Jackman is about to experience all of it in a true life story that shocked a nation and showed just how powerful modern media can be in The Front Runner.
Here’s the official synopsis:
American Senator Gary Hart (Jackman) is loved by all and is running for office in the 1988 presidential campaign, until it suddenly is derailed when it is revealed that he is caught up in a scandalous love affair.
Watch the full trailer below:
The Front Runner is an all-together different kind of film experience for Jackman and makes great use of his solid dramatic range. Here he portrays a man who has the perfect American exterior but who internally is fractured, broken and fallible. All of this collides in a build up of frantic pace and energy as the press claws for answers in the shadows and Hart does everything he can to stay out of the light.
The Front Runner looks like a really engaging watch and will arrive in cinemas early next year.
