Ron Howard United Kingdom, 2008

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Frost/Nixon

Excellent fact-based drama manages to be riveting both intellectually and emotionally - with strong characters and smart writing by Peter Morgan, who adapted the screenplay from his play. Superb performances all around, with Frank Langella as the beleaguered ex-president particularly memorable. Director Ron Howard has crafted an intelligent and engrossing film that effectively recreates an era.
