Nayland Cinema 'Vice'
Friday 12 July 2019
Nayland Village Hall
The film opens the White House responding to the 2001 terrorist attacks, then flashes back to 1963, where Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) who is working as a lineman after his alcoholism led him to drop out of Yale University decides to take back control of his life, after his sweetheart and future wife Lynne Cheney's (Amy Adams) urgent ultimatum. As an intern during Richard Nixon's administration, Cheney grabs the opportunity to join the staff of his mentor, Donald Rumsfeld (Steve Carell), who takes him under his wing, paving the way to rise through the ranks of the White House. After losing his job during Jimmy Carter's presidency, Cheney reluctantly accepts George W. Bush's (Sam Rockwell) proposal to be his running mate - a decision that would grant him the power to pull the strings of foreign policy, especially after the fateful and devastating 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Vice (2018) is an American biographical comedy-drama, narrated by Kurt, a army fictitious veteran, which 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.
