About the film
Director: Adam McKay
Actors: Sam Rockwell, Steve Carrell, Amy Adams, Christian BaleGeorge W. Bush may have been the 43rd President of the United States, but Vice President Dick Cheney was arguably the true power behind the presidency. Given unprecedented control over the country’s energy, military, and foreign policy, Cheney defined the second Bush era both at home and especially abroad.
VICE looks at Cheney and his behind-the-scenes reign through director Adam McKay’s (THE BIG SHORT) incisive satirical lens.
With a stellar cast including Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell, Oscar-winning writer/director Adam McKay (The Big Short) brings his trademark wit to the fascinating true story of Vice President Dick Cheney in this brilliant new comedy. After being employed by the Bush campaign in 2000 to find the best candidates for vice president, Cheney (a transformed Christian Bale) settles on himself for the role, going on to claim more power than any vice president in history - with lasting consequences.
Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell are at the top of their game, delivering hilarious, uncanny portrayal of America's most powerful players.
A film about those who have power, those who want power, and those who abuse it, Vice is a smart, irreverent comedy-drama that will shock and entertain in equal measure.
