FrostNixonFINAL Play Button

Based on a series of 1977 interviews between television personality David Frost (Sheen) and former President Richard Nixon (Langella), Frost/Nixon recounts the story of the historic encounter that changed both their lives. Following the resignation of former President Nixon, Frost seeks to arrange a series of interviews to air on television following the infamous Watergate scandal. Eager to salvage his presidential reputation, Nixon agrees to Frost’s proposal, believing he can take command of Frost, who is better known as a pop cultural entertainment interviewer. Manipulation, speculations, and political investigation ensue shortly after in a charged battle of wits through four tense discussions. Discussion with actor Frank Langella and Ken Hughes
