Review [5.Dec.2008]

Frost/Nixon is one of the films we’re most eagerly anticipating this holiday season. Ron Howard’s film is based on a play from Peter Morgan (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland). Taking as its centerpiece the famous interview that David Frost conducted with Richard Nixon in the ‘70s, the film has a theatrical quality and is timed well given our current absorption with politics.


Here are stills of the upcoming film…
