The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci. In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive. Starring Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Palin, Paddy Comsidine, Andrea Riseborough, Jason Issacs, Paul Whitehouse and Simon Russell Beale.
