The 1977 exclusive set of interviews with former U.S. President Richard M. Nixon and British talk show host David Frost is recreated by acclaimed filmmaker Ron Howard and screenwriter Pete Morgan in Frost/Nixon. Howard’s creative 1970’s feature-documentary captivates a multi-generational audience because the historical account fascinates the soul in search of truth, justice and liberty. In 1974, President Richard M. Nixon (Frank Langella) was forced to resign the office of President of the United States in connection with the Watergate scandal. Millions of people were outraged when President Gerald Ford granted Nixon a pardon, enabling Nixon to avoid an official trial for his involvement in a cover-up. Three years later British talk show host David Frost (Michael Sheen) lands an all-exclusive interview with the former U.S. President to talk about his legacy. Nixon banks on his experience and intelligence to endear the American people. Frost wants a confession but refuses to get it at all costs. The extraordinary events during the twelve interviews are what influence each man to cling to his own ideals. (Karen Pecota)
