LONDON -- A journalist and a U.S. president will provide the opening-night drama at this year's BFI London Film Festival as "Frost/Nixon" kickstarts the event.
Organizers will roll out the red carpet for Ron Howard's big-screen adaptation of Peter Morgan's stage play Oct. 15.
Michael Sheen and Frank Langella reprise their West End and Broadway roles as journalist David Frost and President Richard Nixon in the film that LFF artistic director Sandra Hebron described as a "fascinating study of a unique moment in cultural and political life."
Those interviews attracted the largest audience for a news program in the history of American television, with more than 45 million viewers.
