The moment is 1977. The figures are a disgraced ex-President, Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) and a swanky TV persona, David Frost (Michael Sheen). The movie is Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon ($18). In this dramatic adaptation of Peter Morgan's play by the same name, the title characters engage in a bitter fight—Nixon for redemption, Frost for his real story. Brilliantly acted by Sheen in particular, this piece of history recreated will have you on the edge of your seat—even while knowing the outcome.
