* AbsentMindedProfessor: Quite literally. Jack Layton was a political science professor, and he is portrayed in the movie as being somewhat absent minded. (Forgetting he was supposed to be at a particular fundraiser until after 10 minutes into it, for example.)

* CrowdSong: Reconstructed; rather than the choreographed-looking crowd songs often associated with movies, this movie uses a more plausible kind where groups of people (in this case, Jack's campaign team) sing on a bus, whether it's singing Parachute Club's "Rise Up" earlier on, or a politics-themed parodical version of Home On The Range later on. Neither crowd song is shown in its entirety.

* InMediasRes: The movie starts with Jack Layton in his old age at close to the time of the 2011 election, ([[AnachronismStew with the 80s song "Rise Up" by the Parachute Club playing in the background]]) then alternates between the 2011 election campaign and various moments from Jack's past.
