5 out of 10 Watergate
John from Donegal, 16 Aug 2009
In 1974 Richard Nixon resigned as President of the USA after the Watergate scandal. David Frost managed to interview him. An excellent film which is much bigger then the interview it is about. Michael Sheen is brilliant as Frost, showing his desperation and innocence, and and it was impossible not to think of Langella as Nixon. One of the few films that really deserved all the hype surrounding it.

4.5 out of 10 great political drama
Padraig from Dublin, 09 Oct 2009
This certainly beat my expectations. I was primarily interested from a historical perspective as I didn't know a whole lot about Nixon and had never heard of these interviews. The film-making stands out though. Superb effort, very engaging. If you have even a passing interest in world events then you should find this very enjoyable.

4.5 out of 10 Really Gripping Flick!
Dean & Steffi from Meath, 16 Oct 2009
For a movie based around an interview, I was wondering if this would be pants! But it's actually a very intense drama full of tension and great acting. Makes you want to find out more about that part of America's history, it's that inspiring. I'll never view Throughn The Keyhole in quite the same way! Great film!

4.5 out of 10 brilliant!!
Klair from Dublin, 12 Jun 2009
This was an excellent movie, I thought at times that it was actually Richard Nixon playing himself. It also made me at times feel sorry for Nixon and gave me the impression that he genuinely believed he was doing the right thing. So it certainly turned my opinion on Nixon..for a short while at least....

4.5 out of 10 Lets hear it for Nixon
Seymour from Longford, 22 Aug 2009
The premise, the most likable man meets the least likable man. Nixon is so well played that I was left questioning which was which, and would rather have spent an evening with Nixon then Frost. It’s a very good film that fails only because Nixon is so well done.

What's it about....
Oscar-winning director Ron Howard (Da Vinci Code, A Beautiful Mind) brings to the screen writer Peter Morgan's (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland) electrifying battle between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president with a legacy to save, and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality with a name to make, in the untold story of the historic encounter that changed both: Frost/Nixon. Reprising their roles from Morgan's stageplay are Frank Langella, who won a Tony for...
