New Trailer For The Trotsky

Grabbing our attention this morning is the trailer for Canadian indie comedy The Trotsky , which could well be the next Rushmore .

The film stars Judd Apatow alum Jay Baruchel, last seen in Night At the Museum 2 , as Leon Bronstein, a teen who believes he is the reincarnation of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky, and is determined to recreate every aspect of his life...

Including the exile and assassination bit.

Written and Directed by Jacob Tierney, the film made a strong showing at the Toronto International Film Festival. It doesn't yet have UK distribution, but fingers crossed film fans, because this looks great, and we'd love to see it hit our shores.
