MOVIES FOR PARENTS & THEIR BABIES
Wednesdays @ 11:00am at East 86th St. Cinema
Relax and enjoy a movie without worrying about unexpected tantrums or feedings in the dark. We keep the lights dimmed, the sound volume down, and the movies coming.
The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, BAFTA nominated 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 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.
