I was a fantastic movie. Its wasn enlightening, thoughtful and well made. Frank Langella was totally believable as Nixon. I learned more about the two main characters than what I already knew.

All the acting is in the faces. The characters are interacting with each other in more or less the ordinary, polite ways, but if you watch the fleeting microexpressions that go along with or instead of the speech, that is where the action really is.
Note that this is not considered totally historically accurate, it is taken from a play in which some liberties were taken. But filmed in a very imaginative way, this is not a dry political movie at all. Lots of edge-of-your seat moments. Highly recommend.

We are of an age that we remember every detail of the period and it was so well done!

The story doesn't sound too appealing, but for the politically interested person, this is a nice piece.
I enjoyed it.

Excellent acting. Compelling and intelligent screenplay.
Never insulting ot the audience's intelligence.
The interview and the preparation therefor is like a heavyweight boxing contest. The verbal sparring was fascinating.
If the movie were a bit shorter, it would have been even better. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
