CINEMA: The Death of Stalin
Monday 15th January, 2018 - 20:00€6 – €9
It’s 1953, and Joseph Stalin rules over the Soviet Union with an iron fist… until one morning he’s discovered unconscious. With the dictator at death’s door, his deputies including Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale) and Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor) begin jostling for power. Meanwhile, they find themselves dealing with Stalin’s demanding son & daughter, planning a grand funeral, and keeping the country in order…
In his return to the big screen, Armando Iannucci – creator of Veep and The Thick of It – brilliantly blends farce and drama in this hilarious yet probing historical satire. Loaded with inspired comic moments and thrilling political chaos, The Death of Stalin also proves a provocative portrait of a society under a cruel regime.
Starring: Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin
