"There's smart, there's wicked smart and then there's Adam McKay smart — the latter of which is on full display in VICE, a scorchingly audacious and dark tragicomedy about the man who, the film argues, became the most powerful and dangerous vice president in the history of the nation." — Hollywood Reporter
Golden Globe Winner: Best Actor, Christian Bale
Oscar Nominee: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Original Screenplay, Film Editing and Makeup.
From director Adam McKay (THE BIG SHORT, TALLADEGA NIGHTS) comes a film that's already generating loads of Oscar buzz. The story of Dick Cheney, the most powerful Vice President in history, and how his policies changed the world as we know it. Christian Bale put on over 40 lbs. to inhabit the role.
VICE explores the epic story about how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as Vice-President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
"A sprawling dark comedy. Christian Bale brilliantly morphs into the potato-ish frame of Dick Cheney in a work that represents a nervy high-wire act of a very tall order." - Hollywood Reporter
