Ron Howard approached “Frost/Nixon” a bit like a documentary. The way in which he told the story made me feel that I was getting an insider’s look at what really happened to allow David Frost to pull this off. And I felt that I was getting to the pain that Nixon was going through. Ron captured the confession and the setting of the record straight. I was watching the movie thinking, how did they get this information? You felt the characters struggle with trying to get some resolution for the country. Frank Langella was unbelievable as a character that struggled and finally resolved, “I can’t continue to live with this. I have to do something. I have to say something.” Of course, his people were protecting him. There were no winners. It was painful for everybody, including the country. They didn’t want him to say the wrong thing. It was amazing how Ron got that point across.
