****

Three years after winning the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for The Big Short, a fast-paced and funny look at the 2008 financial crash, writer-director Adam McKay turns his attention to the Iraq War in Vice, an idiosyncratic biopic of ‘the most powerful Vice President in history’, Dick Cheney (Christian Bale).

Vice opens in UK cinemas on 25th January 2019.
