Need we say more?"

Synopsis: This film is about the political life of Richard Nixon. It portrays his vice presidency, presidency, his decisions and all the horrible things he said. It explores the inner workings of his mind from his point of view.

What the press would say:

Kelsey Grammar delivers a chilling performance as the cold hearted Richard Nixon. This is the most accurate portrayal of Nixon in cinema history. Felicity Huffman is sure to pick up another Oscar nod for her excellent performance as Pat Nixon. Bill Murray & Craig T. Nelson as the Vice Presidents were better than I expected. They both deserve the Oscar.
Tom Selleck also does well, but Eisenhower doesn't play an important enough role in the film for him to pick up a nod for best supporting actor
