Frost/Nixon (2008)

Sam Rockwell as "James Reston Jr."

In 1977, three years after the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency, Richard Nixon (Frank Langella) selects British TV personality David Frost (Michael Sheen) to conduct a one-on-one, exclusive interview. Though Nixon believes it will be easy to mislead Frost, and the latter's own team doubts that he can stand up to the former president, what actually unfolds is an unexpectedly candid and revealing interview before the court of public opinion.

Screen Actors Guild Awards (2008) Nominated Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
