Feature Narrative / 2021 / USA / 88 min / Directed by Dan Mirvish
It’s 1974 and a White House transcriber has a copy of missing 18 1/2 minutes of Nixon tapes, but what can she do with them and what secrets do they hold?
In 18 ½ Mirvish turns the missing spool, Watergate, the counter culture, and a whole lot more, into an absorbing, smart and funny alternative history.
A great cast deliver strong performances, the script crackles with energy, and Mirvish’s direction is perfect.
18 ½ has won awards for Best Director at the Manchester International Film Festival and Special Jury Award at the Rome International Film Festival, USA.
