'The Front Runner' looks at a pivotal moment in U.S. political history

(Starts at 8:52)

In 1987, the charismatic Colorado U.S. Senator Gary Hart seemed to have the Democratic presidential nomination locked up, and he would have been favored against Republican candidate George H. Bush. But reports of an extramarital affair — and the way Hart responded — derailed his campaign. Hugh Jackman plays Hart in "The Front Runner," which was directed and co-written by Jason Reitman. The two recently spoke with The Frame's John Horn.
