As for the week of December 24th-30th Kris Kringle will be delivering four films to theaters that include “On The Basis of Sex”, “Destroyer” and the highly anticipated political motion picture “Vice”. Of those three movies, “Vice” will be the only movie being shown in Worcester.
According to the film review website Rotten Tomatoes “Vice” “Explores the epic story of how a bureaucratic Washington insider became the most powerful man in the world as Vice-President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways we still feel today. That man is Dick Cheney, he served eight years as Vice President Of The United States under President Bush from 2001 to 2009. The film might be a great holiday gift to viewers, critics on Rotten Tomatoes say that “Vice takes a scattershot aim at its targets but writer director Adam Mckay hits some satisfying bullseyes and Christian Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.
The forty-four year Bale is transformed into a sixty plus year old Cheney in the film. The film also stars Sam Norwood as George W. Bush and Amy Adams as Lynn Cheney. Norwood is not any stranger to political films, he portrayed Political Journalist James Reston in the film “Frost/Nixon” which brought the story of British Television Host David Frost’s series of interviews to expose Richard Nixon’s Watergate crimes.
