Citizen K

Show trailer
From oligarch to icon for the democracy movement. A political thriller from Russia with Mikhail Khodorkovsky in the lead role.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky became Russia's richest man in the chaotic aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union during the early 1990s. In 2003, he was arrested for fraud and sentenced to 9 years in prison, just a few months after publicly accusing the Putin-led government of being corrupt. 'Citizen K' is the Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney's thorough and eye-opening unravelling of the dramatic story of Khodorkovsky – and of Russia – in the tumultuous years when gangsterism and capitalism were both fighting for power. A political thriller about how the oligarch Khodorkovsky unexpectedly became an icon in the fight for democracy and human rights.
