In early 1953 Moscow, the ever-watchful Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin, collapses unexpectedly of a brain haemorrhage. Inevitably, when his body is discovered in the following morning, panic spreads in the senior members of the Council of Ministers, as they scramble to maintain order and take power. But no one is safe in the middle of tireless plots. Not even the feared chief of the secret police.

❤️ What makes this film special is its outstanding ensemble of actors. Performers of this calibre could bring even the dullest script to life, but in this case, they have excellent material to work with.
The Death Of Stalin is funny, often gut-wrenching, but overall well done - just the way I like it!
