I am going to start reviewing some of the films I have seen recently. This is the first
Review of Frost Nixon
This is the film version of the Tony Award-winning play “Frost/Nixon,” starring Michael Sheen and Frank Langella.
British talk-show host David Frost and the disgraced former president Richard Nixon recorded 4 TV interviews, three years after Nixon resigned from his office.
This is an excellent film which will have you interested throughout however I felt it dropped a small bit in the middle when they are getting the research team assembled in the US. Although the actor playing Nixon is excellent, don’t feel hard done by that there is not the typical Nixon impression or impersonation – after a while you don’t actually notice.
Length 1 hour 58 minutes. Directed by Ron Howard and written by Peter Morgan. Starring Frank Langella, Michael Sheen, Sam Rockwell, Kevin Bacon, Matthew Macfayden, Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall
