‘Frost/Nixon’

 

In the summer of 1977, former President Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) spars with British pop journalist David Frost (Michael Sheen) during a series of taped interviews.

Running time/rating: 2:02; rated R for language.

What they’re saying: “Unlike Oliver Stone, who invested Nixon (a memorable Anthony Hopkins) with Shakespearean heft but refused to sentimentalize him, this is a portrait designed to elicit a sniffy tear or two along with a few statuettes.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
