Nominated for the 2018 BAFTA for Best Screenplay and Outstanding British Film of the Year.
The beginning of the end of Communism in the USSR is the unlikely subject of this absolutely hilarious comedy of terrors from Armando Iannucci - the mastermind behind the immortal 'Alan Partridge' and 'The Thick Of It', with an acclaimed ensemble cast including Jason Isaacs, Steve Buscemi, Michael Palin and Andrea Riseborough.
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 just the film you need when you feel that history and politics are getting to you.
★★★★ "A delicious mockery of Russian history" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
★★★★★ "The Lives Of Others with laughs, it’s farcical, frightening and a timely reminder that things could always be worse" - Nick de Semlyen, Empire
