In a remarkable physical transformation, Christian Bale plays Dick Cheney in this satirical biopic. The official version of the vice president’s role in promoting everything from torture to extraordinary rendition post 9/11 contrasts with director Adam McKay’s take. The film portrays him as a ‘Godfather’ character – a loving and caring father but ruthless self-interested manipulator who controlled a weak and buffoonish George W Bush. By the time you read this, the film may well have won an Oscar or two.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
