- Synopsis / Plot
- A biopic about US Senator Gary Hart's 1988 presidential campaign and his scandalous affair that derailed it. Having lost the democratic ticket to Walter Mondale in 1984, Gary Hart (Jackman) made a triumphant return to candidacy in 1987, at a moment when his party was desperate to wrestle power back from the Republicans after two terms of Reagan. Hart had everything going for him: intelligence, charisma, and experience as a lawyer, campaign manager, and senator, not to mention an ideal First Lady in wife Lee (Farmiga). But everything starts to crumble when word circulates that Hart is a womanizer - a rumour quickly followed by reports that he had an affair with Donna Rice (Sara Paxton).
