Armando Iannucci, the legendary comedic mind behind the hit series The Thick of It and the sensational In The Loop, returns with his latest wickedly off the wall comedic venture The Death of Stalin. Banned in Russia (yes, kiddies, it is), the wildly off the wall farce stars Steve Buscemi, Rupert Friend, Simon Russell, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Isaacs, and Olga Kurylenko. To celebrate the film’s release The Lowdown Under are giving away 10 in-season double passes to see the film when it storms cinemas from the 29th March.

Synopsis: The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.
