The Trotsky (2009)

An upperclass Jewish Montreal high school student believes he is the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky, a Russian revolutionary, and that his life's calling is to bring revolution to Canada. He leaves private school to attend public school for his final semester where he immediately begins to challenge the established authority garnering attention from the press and the woman he believes must be his future wife.

The film is fun and the actors perform well, and while I did enjoy it, it bears a clear taste of Canadian cinema which Canadian films can't seem to escape - a neediness to be different.
