Nominated for four Academy Awards (Best Actor [Anthony Hopkins], Best Supporting Actress [Joan Allen], Best Original Screenplay [Stephen J Rivele, Christopher Wilkinson and Oliver Stone] and Best Original Dramatic Score [John Williams], 1995), Nixon is a spellbinding examination of the man who became known as America's "imperial president." Nixon's ruthless ambition puts him at the pinnacle of American politics, until he begins a disastrous attempt to wrest control of the nation away from the Congress and the courts. As a small group of political zealots seek to concentrate the power and prestige of the United States in the hands of one man, his personal demons drive him to undermine his legacy with political "dirty tricks" and a conspiracy to cover them up.
