Staring: Frank Langella, Michael Sheen
This film brings to the screen the electrifying battle between disgraced president Richard Nixon and interviewer David Frost. It shows the weeks of manoeuvring between the men and their camps as negotiations were struck, deals made and secrets revealed, culminating in the face-to-face interview.
Three years after being forced from office, Nixon agreed to one interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. He surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the British showman. Even Frost’s team harboured doubts about his ability to hold his own, but as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted.
