Adrien Brody stars as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher and lost soul grappling with a troubled past, in Detachment. Barthes finds himself at a public school where an apathetic student body has created a frustrated, burned-out administration. Barthes inadvertently becomes a role model to his students, while also bonding with a runaway teen who is just as lost as he is.
Called a "harrowing depiction of the American educational system" by The Hollywood Reporter, Detachment is the long-awaited movie from director Tony Kaye (Amercian History X). Its stellar ensemble cast includes Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, James Caan, and newcomers Sami Gayle and Betty Kaye.
