Storyline Heading
The film 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 sidelined 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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ... the normally charismatic Hugh Jackman is horribly miscast as Hart. He seems too old and too world-weary... Hart is at the center of this story, and yet he feels like the least-developed character on screen. Privacy is about to become a thing of the past. In "The Front Runner,” it dies with a whimper.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good Hugh Jackman gives his best performance ever... The script's zingers can occasionally come off as store-brand "West Wing.” But it's a fun, endlessly fascinating watch in which the big questions outweigh the tiny problem.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average ...the film is a commendably ambitious attempt by director/co-writer Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air, Tully) to throw audiences into the cacophonous circus of sexual politics and let them vote with their conscience.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average That the filmmakers thought the 2018 midterm election season was the perfect time to air their grievances about the unfair treatment of an influential white man, especially one with a history of questionable treatment toward women, only solidifies the misguided nature of The Front Runner.
