We went to see Frost/Nixon and really enjoyed it. Performances by Frank Langella and Michael Sheen captured the essence of the two men and were excellent! I never realized what all David Frost went through to get it financed and shown. I remember when the interviews were on TV and that it was a big deal, so it was interesting and informative to see what went on behind the scenes. Here's what Roger Ebert wrote in his review:
Strange, how a man once so reviled has gained stature in the memory. How we cheered when Richard M. Nixon resigned the presidency! How dramatic it was when David Frost cornered him on TV and presided over the humiliating confession that he had stonewalled for three years. And yet how much more intelligent, thoughtful and, well, presidential, he now seems, compared to the occupant of the office from 2001 to 2009.Yes, I would.
Nixon was thought to have been destroyed by Watergate and interred by the Frost interviews. But wouldn't you trade him in a second for Bush?
