Wielding almost unprecedented power as a Vice President to George W. Bush, Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) changed the course of global politics in ways that we can still observe in 2019. Vice is the story of Cheney the VP, Cheney the CEO, Cheney the unassuming Washington insider – a man of ruthless cunning and unimaginable ambition. Following 2015’s dynamic and provocative account of the American financial crisis The Big Short, director Adam McKay returns with this nihilistic spiritual sequel, of sorts, showcasing a typically committed lead and immensely entertaining performance by Bale and an all-star cast that includes Amy Adams, Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, Eddie Marsan and Jesse Plemons.
