For three years after being forced from office, disgraced US President Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) remained silent. But in summer 1977, the 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 David Frost as his television confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman. Likewise, Frost’s team harbored doubts about their boss’ ability to hold his own. But as cameras rolled, a charged battle of wits ensued.
