Christian Bale goes through another physical transformation because the role demanded it. This time he plays Dick Cheney in Adam McKay's biopic of the former US vice president.

Vice explores 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 still felt today.
