FILM : The Death Of Stalin (15)

A sulphurous black comedy about backstairs Kremlin intrigue

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.

A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is directed by Armando Iannucci, and has a stellar cast including Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Isaacs, Rupert Friend, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Michael Palin, Paddy Considine and Simon Russell Beale.
