New Clips from Detachment, Starring Adrien Brody.
Tony Kaye (American History X) directs the Tribeca Film drama from the script by newcomer Carl Lund. The film opens March 16th and also stars Tim Blake Nelson, Betty Kaye, Sami Gayle, with Lucy Liu, and Blythe Danner, and James Caan.
Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry quickly becomes a role model as a teacher who actually cares about the well-being of these students. In finding an emotional connection to the students but also fellow teachers and a runaway teen, he finds that he’s not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.
