From Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard comes the electrifying, untold story behind one of the most unforgettable moments in history. When disgraced President Richard Nixon agreed to an interview with jet-setting television personality, David Frost, he thought he’d found the key to saving his tarnished legacy. But, with a name to make and a reputation to overcome, Frost became one of Nixon’s most formidable adversaries and engaged the leader in a charged battle of wits that changed the face of politics forever. Featuring brilliant portrayals by Frank Langella and Michael Sheen, Frost/Nixon is the fascinating and suspenseful story of truth, accountability, secrets and lies.

It shows the key moments of the interview itself but more on the build up to the interviews and the events between them.
Very interesting to watch the human side of Nixon (as he was portrayed in the movie). It is as though Frost stumbled onto a jackpot rather than strategically breaking Nixon down step by step (which I thought would be the case). Nixon's sudden admission on the last interview seems a bit too rushed and anti-climatic. Not sure how it actually happened in real life but it felt like, "Oh, there it is! He's just said it."
Michael Sheen (The Queen) portrays Frost as a confident, ambitious journalist and playboy. Frank Langella (Dracula) so completely transforms himself into Nixon that even though he may not look like the man, he IS the man, with all his flaws and failings and ultimate sadness. The actual subject matter of the film - the backstage negotiations, the toadies on both sides, the strategies - were of little interest to me, but the two stars are such good actors that I found the movie riveting. It constantly builds in intensity and suspense and we know that eventually Frost will elicit a monumental admission of guilt from Nixon. This was huge at the time, although since then, we have seen Presidents concede mistakes almost on a regular basis. These days, taking blame is de rigueur for elected officials.
The movie is fairly dry and talky, but it does have historical significance and Frank Langella's performance is magnificent.
