Still shot from the movie: Frost / Nixon.

Get Our Full Review


Three years after the Watergate Scandal, Richard Nixon agreed to talk with the press. David Frost was the BBC journalist given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview the former US president, but would this newsman have enough strength to the break through Nixon's fortress-like facade? This dramatization looks at the whispers taking place behind the scenes of this very publicly staged conversation.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Frost / Nixon...

This look at the events leading up to the 1970s interviews between David Frost and Richard Nixon makes for a dialogue-heavy movie. Although profanities are infrequent, about a half-dozen sexual expletives are heard. As well, there are depictions of smoking and social drinking (including one scene where a character is intoxicated). Violence is limited to a few seconds of graphic historical newsreel footage of dead and injured Cambodians. Sexual content consists of a brief, far away shot of a nude man seen from the rear, and an apparently naked woman barely seen getting out of bed in a very dark room (which also implies sexual activity between an unmarried couple).
