The Death of Stalin (2018, 15) on Friday 6th April 2018
The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader.
Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government?
Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

What the critics say:
‘Armando Iannucci, a virtuoso of political evisceration, turns horror into comedy in this eccentric comic shocker about a strong man and his world of ashes and blood.’
‘Comedy this black is notoriously difficult to pull off effectively while maintaining something akin to empathy for your characters. 'The Death of Stalin' does this exceedingly well, with dialogue that is razor-sharp and performances that deftly tread the fine line between humor and horror.’
‘The Death Of Stalin is superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.’
