The Death of Stalin Comedy, Drama, History | March 9, 2018 (United States) 7.3
Director: Armando IannucciWriter: Fabien Nury, Thierry Robin, Armando IannucciStars: Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jeffrey TamborSummary: In early-1953 Moscow, under the Great Terror's heavy cloak of state paranoia, the ever-watchful Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin, collapses, unexpectedly, of a brain haemorrhage. As a result, when someone discovers his body the following morning, a frenetic surge of raw panic starts spreading like a virus amongst the senior members of the Council of Ministers, as they scramble to maintain order, weed out the competition, and, ultimately, take power. But, in the middle of a gut-wrenching roller-coaster of incessant plotting, tireless machinations, and frail allegiances, absolutely no one is safe; not even the feared chief of the secret police, Lavrenti Beria. In the end, who will prevail after the death of Stalin? —Nick Riganas
