What's On (Dubai) - - CULTURE -

DIREC­TOR: Adam McKay CAST: Amy Adams, Chris­tian Bale, Steve Carell Chris­tian Bale plays Dick Cheney… are words What’s On never thought would be writ­ten. Other than the oc­ca­sional know­ing twin­kle in Bale’s eye (as if he’s con­fi­dent he’s just nailed a fourth Os­car nom­i­na­tion) the ac­tor is un­recog­nis­able as Ge­orge W Bush’s vice-pres­i­dent, who would wran­gle his way into be­com­ing one of the most pow­er­ful and di­vi­sive men in US political his­tory (until re­cently, of course). Steve Carell also makes a star­tling trans­for­ma­tion as for­mer sec­re­tary of de­fence Don­ald Rums­feld; how­ever, Sam Rock­well’s near-per­fect ‘Dubya’ steals ev­ery scene.
