Adapted screenplay: Frost/Nixon

Peter Morgan (from his stage play)

While one unpopular presidency winds down, this movie re-examines the aftermath of another. Morgan scores with a fictional midnight phone call from Nixon to Frost that sets up the final interview as a kind of Thunderdome death match: Two men enter, one man leaves — with his future intact, anyway.

WHY IT’LL WIN: Old-skewing Acad recognizes the pathos in this ’70s flashback.

MAYBE NOT: Somehow, it seems like a “Rocky” movie at heart.
