Trailer Park | Frost/Nixon

13 09 2008

With national politics on the mind of nearly everyone, this December one of the most famous interviews in American history comes to the big screen when the much celebrated Broadway play, “Frost/Nixon” opens in theaters.

Based on a series of interviews that talk show host David Frost conducted with former President Richard Nixon. During the series of televised interviews that Nixon granted Frost in 1977, the sessions ended with a tacit admission of guilt regarding Nixon’s role in the Watergate scandal.

Directed by Ron Howard, the film reunites its original two stars from the London and Broadway productions of the play, Frank Langella as former US President Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen as British TV broadcaster David Frost.

In light of current events and after the last two terms of the current sitting president, it is an interesting exercise to look back on the loss of trust and innocence in the office of the President.

“Frost/Nixon” opens in theaters in select theaters on December 5.
