Frost/Nixon

Eight years ago, in 2008, Ron Howard directed the Oscar-nominated retelling of what are still the most popular political interviews to ever air on national TV. Frost/Nixon tells the story of 12 interviews performed by British talk-show host David Frost with the former President Nixon. The interviews were performed three years after Nixon had made history by becoming the first United States president -- and only president -- to ever resign from office. Then, in the interviews, Nixon did something else a president never does -- admit guilt on national TV.
