Review of  Frost Nixon Movie

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. Nixon selected Frost as almost a confessor and it became a charged battle of wits. It is a great piece of drama which unfolds over the 2 hours of the movie, with very few slow spots.

The movie has a 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

Frost/Nixon Overall Score: 9/10
