Gary Hart, former senator of Colorado, 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.

“Brilliantly directed by Jason Reitman, from an intelligent, carefully researched and fast moving screenplay, this enthralling film is a mirror to the shifting relationship between the media and politics, and the events that changed the last 30 years in American history.” OBSERVER

“Jackman excels as a deeply flawed hero in this drama about a bygone political era.” NEWSDAY

“A tip-top piece of entertainment starring Hugh Jackman as Hart and Vera Farmiga as his wife, Lee, that is as significant as it is enjoyable.” LOS ANGELES TIMES
