The Front Runner: A Review, with bonus Vera Farmiga and Sara Paxton

This is a well written, acted, and executed movie. You know the story, yet this film still manages to get you drawn in. You can probably wait till it comes out for streaming or DVD (although it is good in the theater too). It is a very good character study. Gary Hart learns that the biggest threat to a public figure is more often than not hubris.  While it is mostly focused on Hart, the film manages to treat Donna Rice (played by Sara Paxton) sympathetically (the media not so much). I recommend it. Everyone involved is good, but Hugh Jackman and Vera Farmiga are especially excellent.
