Frost/Nixon (2008)

A more personal Nixon is revealed in this drama based on the historical interviews conducted by David Frost.

Ron Howard directs behind the scenes stories as both Frost and Nixon vie for popularity. The only way they will win the hearts of Americans is if the other capitulates during the taping of the interviews - Frost wins if Nixon confesses and Nixon wins if he can keep Frost from asking the right questions.

The acting in the film is superb, Frank Langella's Nixon especially. We get a dramatized version of the icon that still represents corruption and self-interest on the grandest scale. The film is stylistically done to keep the flavour of the era strong.
