"★★★★ – Vice is bravura storytelling." – Independent
"★★★★ – Bale brilliantly captures the former vice-president’s bland magnificence in Adam McKay’s entertainingly nihilist biopic" – Guardian
Adam McKay (Anchorman, The Big Short) turns his satirical eye to the Bush-era White House in this biopic of Dick Cheney (Bale, in stunning method mode), a Washington bureaucrat who became one of the most powerful men in the world.
Vice-President to George W Bush (Sam Rockwell), Cheney worked with Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld (Steve Carrell) to reshape the US and the globe, leaving a lasting legacy that still impacts today.
