The Death of Stalin follows the Soviet dictator's last days and depicts the chaos of the regime after his death – Oh and yes, it’s a comedy!

In early 1953 Moscow, under the Great Terror's heavy cloak of state paranoia, Joseph Stalin collapses unexpectedly of a brain haemorrhage. A frenetic surge of panic spreads through the senior members of the Council of Ministers, as they scramble to maintain order, weed out the competition, and, ultimately, take power. In the end, who will prevail after the death of Stalin? 

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.
