THE TROTSKY Movie Picture with Jay Baruchel
Check out a picture from THE TROTSKY starring Jay Baruchel, Domini Blythe, Geneviève Bujold, Anne-Marie Cadieux, Colm Feore, Emily Hampshire, Michael Murphy, Saul Rubinek, and directed by Jacob Tierney.
The Trotsky is part of the Special Presentations lineup at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
The story sounds good and we all know that Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder, Fanboys) can be pretty funny.
The Trotsky Synopsis: Leon Bronstein (Jay Baruchel) is not your average Montreal West high school student. For one thing, none of his peers can claim to be the reincarnation of early 20th century Soviet iconoclast and Red Army hero, Leon Trotsky. When his father (Saul Rubinek) sends Leon to public school as punishment for starting a hunger strike at Papa’s clothing factory, Leon quickly lends new meaning to the term “student union,” determined as he is to live out his pre-ordained destiny to the fullest and change the world.
