Frost/Nixon Blu Ray|
The 2008 historical drama film, Frost/Nixon is based upon Peter Morgan's play of the same name, which dramatises the 1977 televised interviews between journalist David Frost and former US President Richard Nixon. For three years after being removed from office, Nixon remained quiet, but in summer 1977, he sat down with Frost for an exclusive interview to confront questions about his time as President and about the Watergate Scandal, to which he never offered a public apology. The interview was a surprisingly honest and truthful exchange between a man who had lost everything and another who had a lot to gain. This film treats viewers to a recreation of this landmark interview and the deals, negotiations and secrets that led up to the event.from£3.51 | RRP:

Based on Peter Morgan's stage play, Ron Howard directs this dramatised account of the 1977 TV interviews between scandalised former President Richard Nixon and British talk-show host David Frost. Three years after the Watergate scandal that led to his demise, former president Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) sat down with Frost (Michael Sheen) to discuss, for the first and only time, the details of his term in the White House and his spectacular fall from grace. With the famously steely Nixon confident that he could come out tops in the encounter, and Frost's side questioning whether this was a step too far, media commentators prepared themselves for a PR exercise. But when the interviews got underway, observers were astonished when both men abandoned their usual stances, and chose to conduct an open, honest and frank exchange of views, covering all the areas of concern that had previously remained off-limits. In addition to covering the interviews themselves, the film also traces the difficulties that had to be overcome, and egos that had to massaged, before the historic events could finally take place.
