(USA/Great Britain/France, 2008, 122 minutes)
In 1976, the British talk show host David Frost gambles his reputation on securing a high-profile interview with the disgraced ex-president of the USA, Richard Nixon. Dull opening out of an award-winning stage play that has a lot of things on its mind but finds itself reduced to a triumph-of-the-press story by the uninspired handling; not even the performances from the original leads survive.
