Last Saturday, as my nasty cold was slowly incubating in my throat/sinuses, I went to see Frost/Nixon. Earlier, I had watched the superb interviews that Charlie Rose did last week with Ron Howard and Frank Langella and had read the book Frost/Nixon: Behind the Scenes of the Nixon Interviews by David Frost a year ago (actually, it was one of the first books I downloaded to my Kindle). Regretably, I had not seen the play when it was in New York nor have I read the book Frost/Nixon: A Play by Peter Morgan (who also adapted his play into the screenplay for the movie).
Frost/Nixon is just a delight – extremely well done and superbly acted by both Langella as Nixon and Michael Sheen’s portrayal of David Frost. It’s definitely one to watch more than once – as I hope to do again sometime over the holidays. Makes me also want to dust off a copy of Thirteen Days and watch that one again too!
