Frank Langella as Nixon... wow!
"Generally favorable" reviews for Frost/Nixon at Metacritic. For me the film was basically carried by the incredible Frank Langella. If there is such a phrase as ronhowarding a film, that is definitely what happened here. Somehow a semi-faithful adaptation of a play became a fast-paced, slick but entertaining view. All I can say is... smart move hiring Langella to reprise his role from the original play. He lent it some serious weight.
