Gary Hart, a U.S. senator from Colorado, is the widely accepted front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. After losing the 1984 nomination to vice-president Walter Mondale, Hart decides to run for President of the United States. At one point during his campaign, against the will of his manager Bill Dixon, Hart challenges the press and public to "follow him around" while he's not campaigning on weekends. This proves to be a mistake when in 1987, photos of him and journalist Donna Rice are published by Miami Herald Reporters. In a desperate attempt to clear his name, Hart tries to fix his reputation at a news event concerning the affair but to no avail. Because of the consequences of his actions, Hart is disgraced, berated by Dixon, and forced to drop out of the campaign while his wife Oletha remains to be close with him. Donna also announces that she has personally denied sleeping with the now former senator..

I must admit that I didn't know much about this film before seeing it. All the negative reviews on here are due to the fact that I didn't really want to go and see this film, but now that I have seen it, I cannot help but give it an 8/10. It was a very long and time consuming film to get through, but I'm glad I did. For a film about the US presidential election, this is surprisingly deep and thought provoking. It's a film that has you thinking about how our democracy works and why we vote in the first place. And it's got a great message about what's important in life and what isn't. It's a great political drama with some really great performances. Tom Hanks and Rooney Mara are great as the two main characters, but the supporting cast does a fantastic job of supporting the main characters. The cinematography is very good and the film is just overall a great film. The dialogue is sharp and the story is pretty unique. It's a film you can watch over and over again and you will still have a great time watching it. It's not a film that you'll be thinking about at all after watching it, but the film is one of the most well thought out and entertaining films I have seen in a long time. The cast and the acting was great, but the director and the screenplay are the two things that made this film great. I would highly recommend seeing this film, but I would be lying if I said that this is one of the films you'll want to see again in the future.

I loved this film. It is an honest depiction of life in a time of tragedy. The movie is accurate in that a person can be in two places at once. It is also accurate in that the era of the Iraq War, a time when so many lives were lost, is portrayed accurately. The only flaw of the film was the "money shot" at the end. That was very short and had nothing to do with the story, which was in fact the whole point. The only reason I gave it a 10 was because I feel it was a great film and I wanted to see it again.

What's the matter with you people? Let's just have fun with this movie. Some of the movie reviewers are saying that the acting in the movie is so bad that it is a waste of time. I don't agree. This movie was a breath of fresh air for me. I have seen some of the reviews of this movie and most of them are pretty harsh. I think that most of them have some kind of jealousy in their heads. They are saying "Why don't you watch it because of all the good reviews that it got? Well, I just watched it because I wanted to like it." It's not about the reviews, it's about the movie. Watch it. It's not about the good reviews. It's about the movie. I'm telling you, it's a good movie. Do yourself a favor, do not look at all the reviews. You have a right to your own opinion, but please don't judge a book by it's cover. Don't even bother to read the book if you don't like it.

I thought that the movie was excellent. I was so interested in seeing it that I waited in line for two hours and paid a lot of money for it. I found the story, the acting, the direction, and the performances all to be very accurate. I thought it was very inspiring and a great lesson in life. I felt the energy and excitement in the movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a movie that touches you. I would also recommend that everyone watch this movie. You will feel good and have a good time. If you don't like it, then you can leave it at that.

I have a very hard time getting over the negative reviews I've read. Some of them just seem to be making up a movie or a series of movies based on what they think they've seen, and to me, that's always been part of what I love about this world and film. I know this is a low point in the film industry, but it's the truth. A great movie is not always a hit, and a great movie is not always a hit. I do like what I've seen from Ryan Gosling, but I can't help but think he's being overrated. I've seen his best work in the past few years and I think he's an amazing actor, but I just can't help but think that he's just in a lot of movies and I really don't think he's capable of being an Oscar-winner. I thought he was fantastic in Love & Mercy, but his best work has always been in movies where he can go out and do a real acting job, which he did in 13 Hours and the Godfather parts. I've seen an awful lot of great films over the years, and this is by far my favorite. This is a story that really deserves to be told, and it's really sad that we have a bunch of people who think it's trash, and then there's people who are so sick of hearing about these great stories that are just simply good movies. The Front Runner is about the story of a young girl, Joanna (played by the amazing, young, young, and beautiful Felicity Jones), who comes to America as an orphan, and is raised in a small Pennsylvania town. Joanna's parents are a German family, and Joanna gets to know them and their thoughts as she comes to America. Her best friend is a girl named Victoria (played by the beautiful and talented Mia Wasikowska). Victoria is extremely shy and socially awkward, and Joanna is the person who helps her get through this. Joanna begins to learn about the world and has to deal with the societal stigma of being a girl. Joanna's mother is a Nazi, and she becomes very angry when Joanna talks to Victoria about what she's been hearing about the Nazi's and other people. Joanna ends up being accepted at the school she's been attending. Joanna's best friend has to deal with the racism, and begins to become interested in the idea of "fem-flu." Joanna's father sends her to a Catholic school, but Joanna's best friend is not accepting of the idea of this. Joanna and Victoria eventually have a crush on each other. Joanna's father has been trying to find a cure for the polio virus, and they have to deal with the Nazi's that they have to deal with. I really think that this movie deserves to be more widely known, and this is the best movie of the year, and I'm pretty sure it will be the best movie of the year.

I saw this film on TV and thought it was the best film I had ever seen. It was very moving. The actors all did a great job. It is hard to believe that they are all just college kids. The film was beautifully shot. I can't think of anything negative to say about it. I highly recommend it.

The best film i have ever seen. The story was extraordinary, the music and the way the story was told. The movie really brought tears to my eyes, it was an emotional roller coaster, the movie really touched me. I loved the way it made me feel like i am a person living in the movie. I can't describe it any better, the story was amazing, it was amazing how the story was told. I just felt so bad when the movie ended. The movie was really amazing, it was a lot of fun and it was really well made, i thought that the film would get better with time. I am really glad that i watched the movie, and I can't wait to see the sequel. This is a movie that i can't get enough of, i have seen it a total of four times, i just really love it.

The Front Runner is the story of Winston Smith, the young man who is sent to prison for spying and spying. The story is based on a novel by Martin Amis and is set in the British era. The movie is beautifully shot with stunning cinematography and haunting score. I loved it. It was powerful, a reminder of the power of love. I believe that the movie can be a stepping stone in someone's life to see if they will be willing to share their life with someone and give them love. The movie shows that love is love, regardless of how ugly it may be. If you like to see beautiful movies, this is a great choice. I do not see why people did not like this movie. It is one of the best movies of the year.

I loved this movie so much! The story was very inspiring and the ending was very emotional. I really felt sad when my brother died. I didn't want to see this movie in a theatre, but I saw it on DVD and I am so glad that I did. It is so easy to miss this movie. It is worth the money and will last a long time. I am glad that I had the opportunity to see it. The acting was amazing and so real! I recommend this movie to everyone. The Front Runner is a movie that I will never forget.

This is a great movie. I know a lot of people who don't like it but I do. I think that if you are going to see this movie you should be able to see it for what it is. I saw it at the screening, and it was very moving. I think it is a movie about a family in the 1940's and I think that it will be a very important movie for children and a very important movie for the whole family. I hope this review was helpful to you.

I believe this is the best film of our time. Oscar winning, and always on my top ten. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it. It will change your life. I would love to see a real life version of Tom Hanks and Diane Lane in the role of JFK and the fact that they get to play out their parts just fine. I love all the actors in the movie, and I just can't wait to see what their next roles will be. This is a very powerful film. I really can't say enough good things about this movie. In my opinion, this is the best film of the 21st century. I really feel that this movie deserves at least an Oscar nomination, and maybe even a win. This is my favorite movie of all time, and I've seen it more than a few times.

When I first saw this movie, I thought it was going to be a really good movie, but I was wrong. It was a great movie. The acting was really good. The whole movie was filled with suspense, and it was very suspenseful. The movie was a little bit long, but it was still a very good movie. The people who did this movie, they really went all out for it. The actors did a great job. It was really great, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good movie. It was very good, and I would give it a 10 out of 10.

The Front Runner is my first review, so this is my first movie review. I watched this movie a couple of times on the big screen. I really enjoyed the movie, I think it is a great film. I am a true film buff. I saw a lot of movies. I liked this movie, I liked the story, I liked the acting, I liked the script. It was a good movie, it was a good movie. I will definitely buy this movie on DVD when it comes out on DVD. The biggest thing I would like to say is that I really like the character of the lead character, the acting of the movie is great. All the actors did a great job. The movie is definitely one of my favorites. I can't wait for the movie to come out on DVD.
