Frost/Nixon

Directed by Ron Howard
United Kingdom, France, 2008
Drama, Biography, History

Synopsis

Nixon remained silent on his removal from office. One summer in 1977, he agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview with David Frost. What resulted was an honest exchange between a man who had lost everything and another with everything to gain.

Our take

Adapted to the screen from a play by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Rush), Frost/Nixon digs into the manipulative yet vulnerable nature of modern politics to the thrilling rhythm of its screenplay. A boxing film without the gloves, with standout performances from Michael Sheen and Frank Langella.
