The Trotsky

ORIGINAL TITLE:
The Trotsky
Canada / 2010 / 120 min
DIRECTOR:
Jacob Tierney
A socialist high school comedy about a teenage bolshevist

Leon Bronstein is a high school student who sincerely believes himself to be the reincarnation of the Soviet Bolshevist Leon Trotsky. His goal is to convince his cynical and lethargic fellow students to revolutionary action against the fascist regime at school. THE TROTSKY is a serious and at the same time hilarious comedy which combines a coming-of-age story with political satire. The film has witty dialogue, a tight script and intelligent humor, with a unique spin on the high school comedy genre.
