Frost/Nixon

    In hopes of coat-tailing the political frenzy of the November elections, Ron Howard’s latest draws inspiration from a landmark interview between British talk-show host David Frost and then-resigned president Richard Nixon. Adapted from a critically acclaimed British play and featuring its original actors, the film harkens weighty, politically charged cinema like “Good Night and Good Luck”. The same interview that resulted in Nixon all but pleading guilty to the Watergate crimes, “Frost/Nixon” promises nearly as much shock value the second time around — now, back in the States and on the big screen to boot. Anyone craving the intellectual exhilaration of watching a thrilling debate of wits and dusty electoral commentaries will no doubt get off on “Frost,” but if the prospect of a simple man-to-man conversation serving as a film’s climax scares the crap out of you, then stay at home and watch TV the way it was meant to be watched — on the couch, with your $10 safely stashed for another rainy day. In theaters Dec. 5.
