The Front Runner
The Orange County Film Society is proud to continue our 2018-2019 season with an advance screening of THE FRONT RUNNER.
RSVP’S FOR THIS EVENT WILL BE AVAILABLE ON 11/12 @ 5:00PM
Oscar® nominee Hugh Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart for Academy Award®-nominated director Jason Reitman in the new thrilling drama The Front Runner. 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.
