The front runner (2018)

An underwhelming film with great acting by Hugh Jackman, it speaks of the real life of aspiring candidate Gary’s Hart, who was a favourite to win the presidents’ race in 1988.

It could have had more impact, but left the audience with lukewarm sentiments and sympathy for the lead character.
