When Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, Deputy General Secretary Malenkov is named as acting Premier. However, behind the scenes there is a chaotic struggle for true power, with Khrushchev and Beria in particular vying for the loyalty of their comrades, with often farcical – and sometimes lethal – consequences.

STARRING: Steve Buscemi | Simon Russell Beale | Jeffrey Tambor | Andrea Riseborough | Rupert Friend | Michael Palin

DIRECTED: Armando Iannucci

WRITTEN: Armando Iannucci | David Schneider | Ian Martin | Peter Fellows

PRODUCED: Yann Zenou | Laurent Zeitoun | Nicolas Duval Adassovsky | Kevin Loader


THEY SAY: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.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 2017

WE SAY: As dark as satire comes – it could be argued that it verges on comedy-horror, as the brilliant ensemble cast stumble their way through a scenario that nobody has dared prepare a contingency for. Iannucci at his brilliant, subversive best.
