    Frost/Nixon - 8.5/10

    Langella's portrayal of Nixon is fantastic, but perhaps overly sympathetic - by the end the film had done a pretty good job of rehabilitating him. Ron Howard cheesifies the whole thing a little bit with some Apollo 13 style tension and I got the impression the story had been simplified quite a lot to fit it neatly into 90 minutes, and some of the nuances lost.

    Rebecca Hall looks amazing, however.
