Very interesting article in the Huffington Post by Elizabeth Drew.
Drew takes umbrage with the way Frost/Nixon screenwriter Peter Morgan distorts history.
This is a movie. I think the audience understands the story isn't a historical document.
Still, if you've seen the movie you probably wondered what the real story is. Drew's essay is a good Coles Notes version of the events surrounding the interview. The way Drew tells it Frost and Nixon were co-conspirators, both counting on the interview for different reasons. Worth a read.
And you can see more about my take on Frost/Nixon including some clips from the actual interviews here.
