Cinema Politica Presents “The Trotsky”

The Revolution Begins in High School

Leon Bronstein (Jay Baruchel) is not your average Montreal West high school student. He wants to change the world. Like most high schoolers, Leon is having an identity crisis and believes he is the reincarnation of Soviet thinker Leon Trotsky and is predestined to follow the same path as his namesake. Tackling issues from students’ rights to semi-formal dances, this “revolutionary” comedy will have you united in laugher.
