Journalists’ cameras are always watching in The Front Runner, director Jason Reitman’s take on the scandal that ended Gary Hart’s 1988 presidential campaign.
Rated R for language and thematic situations, the film is a sprawling account of Hart’s political demise. In the end, it focuses as much on journalists’ paparazzi tactics as on Hart’s adultery, which is implied rather than shown.
