Jay Baruchel was exceptional in the film The Trotsky. Baruchel mastered the awkward but lovable teenager and acted it with conviction. He plays a young jewish boy in Montreal who firmly believes that because of the parallels in his life that he is the reincarnation of Leon Trotsky, a big player in the Russian Revolution. He played this so well, even the way he walked was changed but worked perfectly. This movie is filled with funny moments, cute characters and hilarious situations it definitely left me satisfied. He begins as staging a hunger strike at his Dad's factory and ends with trying to create a student union so the students can be listened to. A lovely, funny and endearing Canadian movie this is definitely worth seeing.
