Video DescriptionAdrien Brody plays a detached high school teacher in this Tony Kaye drama that looks pretty solid and emotional from this trailer. There might be cliches, but the extremely impressive supporting cast suggests that this one is something to watch out for. Plus, anything from the director of the excellent 'American History X' has to be given a chance.
Plot - Director Tony Kaye’s (AMERICAN HISTORY X) long-awaited film DETACHMENT stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher who conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form a bond with either his students or colleagues. A lost soul grappling with a troubled past, Henry finds himself at a public school where an apathetic student body has created a frustrated, burned-out administration. Inadvertently becoming a role model to his students, while also bonding with a runaway teen who is just as lost as he is, Henry finds that he’s not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.
