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.

The film features a screenplay by Matt Bai, Jason Reitman and Jay Carson. It is produced by Helen Estabrook, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Reitman.

The Front Runner will be released in UK cinemas on 11th January 2019.
