The Death of Stalin

Rated: 

Genre:  Comedy

Running Time: 106 min.

Director: Armando Iannucci


The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci.

Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin (Adrian McLoughlin) 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.

Based on the comic book The Death of Stalin by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin.

Having read the book Wild the month before, but feeling unable to relate to it, Vivian decides to introduce the women to Christian Grey – the handsome title character of the bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
