Nixon

<b>The holiday:</b> President's Day<br>
<br>
<b>The movie:</b> 'Nixon' (1995)<br>
<br>
<b>In a sentence:</b> Dark, tragic biopic of the troubled president Richard Nixon.<br>
<br>
<b>Why it captures the holiday:</b> Richard Nixon may not be the most beloved president and Oliver Stone's epic-length biopic of the man may not even be his strongest presidential-themed film. So why "Nixon"? Volume, volume, volume. On the one holiday designed to celebrate every former occupant of the Oval Office, Stone's film provides a chance to see more presidents on screen than any other single movie. Besides Anthony Hopkins' surprisingly good Nixon, we get archival footage of George H.W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
