Actor Christian Bale undergoes another amazing transformation, this time covering 50 years in the life of one of the most influential politicians ever. This smart, opinionated, and engaging film from director and Oscar-winning screenwriter Adam McKay (The Big Short) follows the life of Dick Cheney from a drunken college dropout with no future to the most powerful vice president in our country’s history. The ultimatum given him by his girlfriend Lynne (Amy Adam) sends him on a path to aide to freshman Congressman Donald Rumsfeld (Steve Carrell) until choosing himself to be George W Bush’s (Sam Rockwell) second in command. This is an audacious, hilarious, unnerving and disturbing film.
