I found later that this movie was an exageration, and was not quite true in its facts; too bad.

If you are interested in politics and corruption, you will like this movie. I did get a little bored.
The acting is good. Frank Langella seemed a little over the top, but so did Nixon.

Frost/Nixon is a must-see film, not only for the historical perspective, but the outstanding performances of Langella and Sheen. Frank Langella's portrayal of Richard Nixon is striking on several levels. While he doesn't resemble Nixon physically, he has mastered the mannerisms and speeh patterns perfectly. I have never felt any pity for Nixon, but this film comes very close to making one feel for the man. I suspect that is the quality of Langella's performance, rather than any feeling for Nixon, the person, although the film gives one a new perspective on the events and the emotions of the participants. One of the most striking and disarming moments comes in the final meeting of Frost and Nixon after the interviews have been completed; the scene is like looking into the soul of Nixon. Sheen and Bacon were equally compelling, but the film belongs to Frank Langella.

For anyone not around during the 70"s this is a must see. The acting (especially Langella) is terrific. I actually started to see Nixon, not Langella. Although the "crime" pales by today's standards, the study of the presidency is a worthy subject.
