Front Runner

ZZZZzzz…wake me up when it becomes a movie.  I suppose it’s mean to mimic some TV counterparts in a documentary type style but it barely catches your attention.  Starting out with you in a campaign meeting, the best it gets is when Hart if confront, about mid way through the movie, by reporters.  Jackman does a great job with what he’s given in that he’s an intelligent yet aloof man who has no real arc in life.  Seems to always be in shock with what life throws him, even when apologizing to his wife.  Good cast, not a fan of the direction/cinematography and odd use of music.  Not sure what the film is mean to do – mark one of our pivot points in history when paparazzi scratched the door or politics or … remind you that all political stories have become the same as “the goodwife”.  Not date night but maybe late night can’t sleep film.
