When this movie showed up in my mailbox I was pretty much predisposed to disliking it. History has never been a strong point for me, especially American History. I blame this on attending a private Catholic school. I'm sure at one point, that sort of education had some sort of prestigious affiliation, but when I was enrolled at Santa Clara High School it was staffed with mostly alcoholic, absentee teachers, drug use among students was rampant and the school itself was in an academic slump. So while I definitely had heard of Nixon and Watergate, I wouldn't say I had any more than a passing awareness of it. Frost/Nixon is an extremely well done period piece and in my opinion, Frank Langella may as well have been Richard Nixon. Incredible acting. There is a Kevin Bacon connection and since this movie was directed by Ron Howard, his brother Clint has his prerequisite cameo as a cameraman. Husband and I can't say enough wonderful things about Oliver Platt and while I can't seem to visualize Sam Rockwell as anything other than the bad guy and Drew Barrymore's quasibeau in the first Charlie's Angels movie, he also did amazing job in his supporting role. I highly recommend this movie for history buffs and people that may be in need of hearing this story for the first time. Wonderfully done.
