The story of Dick Cheney (Christian Bale), an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.

Gov. George W. Bush of Texas picks Dick Cheney, the CEO of Halliburton Co., to be his Republican running mate in the 2000 presidential election. When Bush becomes victorious, Cheney uses his newfound power to help reshape the country and the world.

After the success of The Big Short, Adam McKay – director of Anchorman, Step Brothers and other recent classic comedies – is continuing his venture into more mature drama territory with a Dick Cheney biopic. The film will chart Cheney’s rise to becoming, as the official synopsis has it, “the most powerful Vice President in history”. Vice is set for a US release in mid-December this year, and could be a dark horse in the Oscar race – while the likes of First Man and Roma are currently dominating the conversation, the subject matter here is likely to be a major Oscar draw, and if McKay can work in the same entertainment value here as he did with the financial crisis story in The Big Short (which won Best Adapted Screenplay and was up for Best Picture and Best Director, among other awards) this should be one for critics and mainstream audiences alike.

Brainy, audacious, opinionated and fun, “Vice” is a tonic for troubled times. Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Time

Rally For Fair Wages

The provincial government has still not proposed a fair deal to nursing home workers. This is part of a bigger anti-worker agenda of cuts and austerity. This will affect many other sectors, as well as services to New Brunswickers.

Together, let’s send a clear message to MLAs: Taking care of people should and must be a priority.

Manifestons pour des salaires équitables

Le gouvernement provincial n’a toujours pas proposé d’accord équitable aux travailleurs des foyers de soins. Ceci fait partie d’un agenda de coupures et d’austérité. Cela affectera aussi d’autres secteurs et diminuera encore les services offerts aux Néo-Brunswickois.

Ensemble, envoyons un message clair aux députés: prendre soin des gens devrait être une priorité.
