Director Tony Kaye's (American History X) long-awaited film DETACHMENT stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist, Splice) 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.

STUNNING film about the battle for our youth's hearts and minds. Like Up The Down Staircase or To Sir, With Love on steroids. I watched, then read reviews. Read morePublished 1 month ago by trancelucence
