What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Vice is a biopic about former Vice President Dick Cheney and his powerful role in the Bush administration from 2000-2008. It tells the story of how George W. Bush (Sam Rockwell) asked Cheney (Christian Bale) to be his running mate, with Cheney using the role to become one of the most powerful people in the world. Steve Carell and Amy Adams co-star. Expect lots of swearing and violent images of war.
