Synopsis:

The Death of Stalin is a hilarious comedy of terrors directed by Armando Iannucci. On the night of March 2nd 1953 Joseph Stalin, the “Father of the People,” who reigned in absolute power over Russia, suffered a stroke that would prove fatal. After eventually being pronounced dead, the Soviet dignitaries panic, plot, experience insane paranoia and turn into a bunch of scared, malicious children. The only thing left to do was laugh. 

The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, translated from the French original La mort de Staline. It is superbly cast and acted by an A-list lineup including Michael Palin who is outstanding as Molotov, the pathetic functionary with the kindly, unhappy face who sacrificed his marriage and self-respect on the altar of Stalinism.  

Described as 'Outrageously funny', 'A truly hilarious comedy masterpiece' and 'The funniest film of 2017'.
