FROST/NIXON brings history to life with such dramatic intensity that audiences feel eyewitness to a duel of titans from the worlds of politics and journalism. Ron Howard and screenwriter Peter Morgan, working in perfect harmony, have reinvented Morgan's stage play in cinematic terms, making it a dynamic ensemble piece where warring camps ready for battle. Tour de force performances by Frank Langella as Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen as David Frost command the screen with all the power of a Shakespeare play. This is not only a film about an historic event, but also the blinding light of hubris and the fight for how one is to be remembered. FROST/NIXON will be remembered as a classic.
