After a few weeks of escalating panic and scandal in 1987, Senator Gary Hart (Hugh Jackman) threw away his chances of ever becoming the Democratic presidential nominee. He quit the race after the media published reports about his adulterous fling with Donna Rice (there were other revelations in the offing). This lively movie pretty much fights in Hart’s corner, setting up the argument that he’s a man of decency, principle and foresight – he’d have beaten Bill Clinton to building that bridge to the 21st century – chased into oblivion by grubby reporters.
The Couple. The Front Runner. @verafarmiga @frontrunnermovie
Well, it’s one way of looking at it, even if at times Runner is like an obelisk of superior cheddar being swarmed by rats. Jackman doesn’t much resemble Hart, a handsome, flinty son of America’s Midwest, but he’s excellent in the role nevertheless. (Out now) 3 stars
