    This screening is part of a monthly film series at the Newton-Conover Auditorium hosted by the Footcandle Film Society.  An optional discussion of the film will take place in the auditorium immediately after the conclusion of the film.  There will be beer, wine, beverage and refreshments for sale before the film.  The screening is open to the public and all potential future film society members are welcome; no membership to the film society is required to attend the screening.

    About the film:  Gary Hart (Hugh Jackman), former senator of Colorado, becomes the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1987. Hart's intelligence, charisma and idealism makes him popular with young voters, leaving him with a seemingly clear path to the White House. All that comes crashing down when allegations of an extramarital affair surface in the media, forcing the candidate to address a scandal that threatens to derail his campaign and personal life..

    This film is rated R for language including some sexual references.
