Based on graphic novel The Death Of Stalin by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, writer and director Armando Iannucci’s (Veep, The Thick of It) acerbic satire is set in the days following the Russian leader’s stroke in 1953 as his core team of ministers tussle for control. An all-star cast includes Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Paddy Considine, Rupert Friend, Jason Isaacs and Olga Kurylenko.
The Death of Stalin will screen on general release from Fri 20 Oct. Listen to our review in the October film podcast. It starts at the 5.25 minute mark!
