Frost / Nixon
Frost / Nixon
Frost / Nixon Wallpapers collection is about movie with oscar-winning director Ron Howard brings to the screen writer Peter
Morgan's ("The Queen," "The Last King of Scotland") electrifying battle
between Richard Nixon, the disgraced president with a legacy to save,
and David Frost, a jet-setting television personality with a name to
make, in the untold story of the historic encounter that changed both:
"Frost/Nixon." Reprising their roles from Morgan's stageplay are Frank
Langella, who won a Tony for his portrayal of Nixon, and Michael Sheen,
who fully inhabited the part of Frost onstage in London and New York.
For three years after being forced from office, Nixon remained silent.
But in summer 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief
agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions
of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his
presidency. Nixon surprised everyone in selecting Frost as his
televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British
showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans.
Likewise, Frost's team harbored doubts about their boss' ability to
hold his own. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits resulted.
Would Nixon evade questions of his role in one of the nation's greatest
disgraces? Or would Frost confound critics and bravely demand
accountability from the man who'd built a career out of stonewalling?
Over the course of their encounter, each man would reveal his own
insecurities, ego and reserves of dignity--ultimately setting aside
posturing in a stunning display of unvarnished truth.
"Frost/Nixon" not only re-creates the on-air interview, but the weeks
of around-the-world, behind-the-scenes maneuvering between the two men
and their camps as negotiations were struck, deals were made and
secrets revealed...all leading to the moment when they would sit facing
one another in the court of public opinion.
"Frost/Nixon" is a collaboration between Imagine Entertainment and
Working Title Films, with Academy Awardï¿½ winners Brian Grazer and Ron
Howard joining Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner as producers. Joining
Langella and Sheen as the colorful real-life personalities who provide
the men counsel is a formidable roster of actors including Kevin Bacon,
Oliver Platt, Sam Rockwell, Toby Jones and Matthew Macfadyen.
