Drama
Two historical figures we’d rather forget about — national wart Richard Nixon and broadcaster David Frost — square off in a Ron Howard-directed actors’ tournament based on a real-life 1977 televised interview between the disgraced ex-president and the down-on-his-luck TV host. Frank Langella’s Nixon wins — his portrayal of Tricky Dick is as good as Anthony Hopkins’. Michael Sheen captures Frost’s essential smarminess smartly, but why bother in the first place, except to chew over a spurious “journalistic coup”? The epitome of a white elephant movie, adapted by playwright Peter Morgan from his stage drama. Also with Sam Rockwell, Kevin Bacon, and Oliver Platt (122 min.).
