Film description via Wikipedia:
Vice is a 2018 American biographical comedy-drama film written and directed by Adam McKay. The film stars Christian Bale as Dick Cheney with Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Alison Pill, and Tyler Perry in supporting roles. The plot follows Cheney in his desire to become the most powerful Vice President in America’s history.
It is the second theatrical film to depict the George W. Bush administration, following Oliver Stone’s W., and the third collaboration between Bale and Adams, following The Fighter and American Hustle. The film was announced in November 2016, with McKay set to write and direct.
Bale signed on to play Cheney in April 2017, and much of the cast joined throughout the rest of the year. Principal photography began in September 2017.
Vice is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 25, 2018, by Annapurna Pictures. The film divided critics; some lauded it as “cleverly biting” while others denounced it as “a clumsy display of political hatred,” with McKay’s script and direction receiving both “scathing critiques and celebratory praise”.
Despite the divide on the film itself, the performances, particularly of Bale and Adams, received universal acclaim. The film received numerous award nominations, including a leading six at the 76th Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
