'Vice' is a character study on the quest for power

Clip: 02/12/2019 | 7m 5s

Part comedy, part tragedy, the Oscar-nominated movie "Vice" is all raw politics. The film paints a portrait of former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne. Jeffrey Brown sits down with director Adam McKay and star Amy Adams to discuss how they approached portraying the couple and how the film fits into the current political climate.
