Frost/Nixon: Movie Screening at the U.S. Consulate
Frost/Nixon, a movie by Ron Howard
The Public Affairs Section at the U.S. Consulate in Jeddah held a movie screening yesterday evening to an audience of 25 students from Jeddah studying political science.
The movie Frost/Nixon was released in 2008 and was described by film critics as "one of the year's few films that deserves to be seen." It shows the historic encounter between President Richard Nixon and David Frost, a television talk show host with a name to make, that changed both lives forever.
Political science students from Jeddah were the main audience. They enjoyed the compelling story of the movie that lasted for two hours.
A discussion followed the movie screening led by Cultural Affairs Officer at the Consulate Dina Badawy who asked about the viewers' opinion and listened to their ideas reagarding the Nixon era.
