The inner political panorama of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comedian type in a brand new movie by Emmy award-profitable and Oscar-nominated author/director Armando Iannucci.
In the times following Stalin’s collapse, his core staff of ministers tussle for management; some need constructive change within the Soviet Union, others have extra sinister motives. Their one widespread trait? They’re all simply desperately attempting to stay alive.
A movie that mixes comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, The Death of Stalin is a Quad and Main Journey manufacturing, directed by Armando Iannucci, and produced by Yann Zenou, Kevin Loader, Nicolas Duval Assakovsky, and Laurent Zeitoun. The script is written by Iannucci, David Schneider and Ian Martin, with further materials by Peter Fellows.
