Description

Now playing at the State 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?
