'The Trotsky' Coming to Canada on May 14

Some of you have probably seen The Trotsky during the last Toronto International Film Festival, Festival du nouveau cinéma or Kingston Canadian Film Festival. The wait will almost be over, because The Trotsky will hit Canadian theatres on May 14. Besides, the poster and the trailer of this comedy from Jacob Tierney have been online since a few days.

The four students in the front from left to right: Ricky Mabe, Kaniehtiio Horn, Jesse Camacho and Tommie-Amber Pirie.

Leon Bronstein (Jay Baruchel), a teenager from a wealthy family, infuriated his father (Saul Rubinek), because he organized a strike at the family's clothing factory. Moreover, Leon did that because he firmly believes he's the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky, a Russian communist revolutionary. As a punishment, Leon gets sent to a public school. Once there, Leon will try to unionize the students in order to live his faith to its fullest.

I've seen the film at the latest Festival du nouveau cinéma. Even though I found the film a tad cheesy and predictable, it entertained me.

Chances I'll go see the film in theatres: 100%.
