Trailer für “The Trotsky”

Sonntag, März 7th, 2010

Filmjunk Review:

Jay Baruchel (Knocked Up, Tropic Thunder) stars as teenager Leon Bronstein and he truly believes that he is the reincarnation of Bolshevik and Marxist theorist Leon Trotsky. Why do you ask? Well, for one Leon Bronstein was the given name to Leon Trotsky and this kid has a big thing for workers rights and unions. He thinks his life should parallel Trotsky’s life so much that he plans on being exiled, at least twice, and ultimately assassinated. At the moment though, he’s quite focused on finding his Lenin and an older woman to marry, preferably named Alexandra.

We get a good glimpse of what this kid is all about when, as a 17 year old, he tries to unionize the workers at his father’s plant within the first 24 hours of his employment there. His punishment? Having his funds cut off from his fancy private school and being forced to slum it in a public high school for his final year. Here, he has his revolution ideas fully put to the test as he meets the evil and controlling Principal Berkhoff (Colm Feore in an excellent performance) and his brutally strict second in command, Mrs. Davis (Domini Blythe)
