Description

In 1974, a White House transcriber is thrust into the Watergate scandal when she obtains the only copy of the infamous 18 1/2-minute gap in Nixon's tapes. Director Dan Mirvish's award-winning 70s Watergate thriller/comedy stars Willa Fitzgerald, John Magaro, Vondie Curtis Hall, Catherine Curtin, Richard Kind, Sullivan Jones, Alanna Saunders, Claire Saunders and the voices of Ted Raimi as Gen. Al Haig, Jon Cryer as H.R. Haldeman and Bruce Campbell as President Richard Nixon.

What the critics are saying:

"18½ is a rare find in the current landscape of filmmaking, an original story that draws you in from the opening frame. 18½ is weird, engrossing, and thoroughly enjoyable"

Susan Leighton, ScreenAnarchy

"Stylish, Kooky 18½ Finds the Weird in Watergate…a stylish, off-kilter, Watergate comic thriller. It's a small-scale flight of fancy that blends truth, fiction and conspiracy, imagining fictional characters on the fringes of the real-world scandal…."

Sarah McDermott, CNET

I liked this! It is weird, small, and unexpected.
