Plot Summary

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: In its glib and reductionist way, it works like a charm. Or better yet, like television. Which, finally, is a compliment. – Tom Charity,, Oct 28, 2014

Fresh: You never feel like you're watching a play on film: The way Morgan has opened up the proceedings in his screenplay feels organic under the direction of Ron Howard, who has crafted his finest film yet, and one of the year's best. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Oct 28, 2014

Fresh: All this makes for great entertainment on the big screen, though the real legacy of the Nixon interviews is more vexing than Morgan would have us understand. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Oct 28, 2014

Fresh: Nixon is infinitely more complex than George W. Bush, which is probably why this one slice of his life is more intriguing than "W," which covers decades. – Richard Roeper, Richard, Jun 24, 2010

I loved this movie! Best movie of the year and my new favorite of all time. I loved Frank Langella's gripping performance as the infamous Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen was amazing as Sir David Frost. 10 stars out of 5

Compelling story, but probably works better as a play

This movie is good, the director presented a clear vision and the actors' performances were interesting and realistic but it would have been better in it's original play form. Some of the fast-paced emotional drama is lost in the movie but if offers more visible character development. Frost/Nixon suffers a slight "Shakespeare-effect" in which the cinematic version is never as good as the live theater, but it's definitely worth AT LEAST a rent.

Based on an actual event

(I was not aware that a stage play had been adapted from the television interview.) I saw the actual Frost/Nixon television interview and this does a fair job at re-enacting the on camera events. Compelling performances from all actors. A must for history buffs.
