The Death of Stalin (2017)

The Death of Stalin — (England/France/Canada, 2017, satire, 107m, R)

When tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to become the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweebish Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi) and Lavrenti Beria ( Simon Russell Beale) — the sadistic secret police chief.  

As they bumble, brawl and back-stab their way to the top, the question remains — just who is running the government? 

Winner of British awards for best comedy, screenplay, casting, makeup and hair design.
