The Death of Stalin

United Kingdom, France, 2017 / 106 Mins

Director: Armando Iannucci

Starring: Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko

The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci. In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.
