On May 27, 2022, 18½ is hitting select theaters with expansion to more theaters on June 3, 2022. The film stars Willa Fitzgerald and John Magaro.
18½ is about a White House transcriber thrust into the Watergate scandal when she obtains the only copy of the infamous 18½ minute gap in the Nixon’s tapes. Daniel Moya and Dan Mirvish wrote the film, with the latter directing the film.
Upon watching this film, I was in awe of how incredibly well Mirvish broke down this film by building many thrilling aspects that leave you on the edge of your seat. It’s a twisted political thriller that keeps you guessing. I love how you think the film will go one way and it goes another throughout the film. The film is led by a career-best performance from Willa Fitzgerald with some great supporting work by John Magaro, Richard Kind, Vondie Curtis-Hall and Catherine Curtin.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with one of the film stars, Willa Fitzgerald, to talk about her role as Connie in the film, what it was like playing the role and much more.
