Film synopsis

Stand up and be counted as Leon Bronstein (Jay BaruchelShe’s Out Of My League) wants you on his side to fight the good fight, beat down the oppressors and take over the classroom in High School Revolution (AKA The Trotsky). The tale of a typical teen with an identity crisis, Leon is determined to fulfill his destiny and follow in the footsteps of his namesake, notorious Soviet thinker Leon Trotsky.
Dissatisfied with the status quo and challenged at every turn by teachers and Stalinesque authoritarians alike Leon appeals to the throngs of budding individuals and disenchanted youth to rise up and let their frustrations be known and to overthrow the principal’s dictatorship in the process.
In the raucous tradition of Rushmore and Napoleon Dynamite comes a rip-roaring new entry into high school hilarity.
