As the American presidential elections loom in November, we look at the literary and cinematic portrayals of the POTUS (President of the US). It is a role that has gone beyond being the embodiment of political power, but also about creating a public persona that caters to an increasingly media-saturated world. These films explore the blurring of the line between the real and public selves of the US President.

Frost/Nixon
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Frank Langella, Michael Sheen, Kevin Bacon
2008 | 122 mins | US | Rating: NC16 (Some coarse language)

When disgraced President Richard Nixon agreed to an interview with the jet-setting television personality David Frost, he thought he had found the key to saving his tarnished legacy. But, with a name to make and a reputation to overcome, Frost became one of Nixon’s most formidable adversaries and engaged the leader in a charged battle of wits that changed the face of politics forever.

Based on the 2006 play of the same name by Peter Morgan.
