Movie recommendation

We just got back from seeing Frost/Nixon. VERY enjoyable.

Frank Langella is tremendous as Nixon.

Frank made his name on stage and in a mediocre film as Dracula. I was thinking about his characters, Dracula and Nixon. Of course, one was an evil soulless bloodthirsty monster--while the other was just a vampire.

Ha, good one. I'm going to have to wait for the video. No way will my husband go to that with me. Did you see W? I'm waiting for that one too.

I am intrigued by this movie, but I know there is a video of the ACTUAL Frost/Nixon interviews, so I'm not sure why I would opt for this version.

It is the back story, how the interviews came to be, the power plays involved, the strategies, etc.

Lula, I did not see W. No matter how good it is, I could not spend 2 hours with even a cinematic Bush.
