Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age envy. During a tight presidential primary race, his meteoric rise falls prey to backroom politics. A fast-paced drama about the lust for power and the costs one endures to achieve it, Farragut North was a hit on the coasts before its Chicago premiere. The script was also the basis for the recent film The Ides of March.
