HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
On Tuesday 10 April we’re showing “The Death of Stalin” at 7.30 in Harman’s Cross Village Hall.
According to a high-ranking official in Russia’s culture ministry this film is an insidious attempt to destabilise the country’s establishment. It seems that Stalin’s death is no laughing matter. The director, Armando Iannucci of The Thick of It fame, creates in his usual style and portrays the aftermath as a tale of political idiocy. The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire. 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 brilliant comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction magnificently performed by a sparkling cast.
Tickets £5 on the door, which will open, along with the bar, at 7pm.
