Henry’s past

DETACHMENT is DirectorTony Kaye’s (American History X) uniquely stylized portrait of the American education system as seen through the eyes of Henry Barthes (Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody), an educator with a true talent to connect with his student, yet 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 unlikely emotional connection to the students, teachers, and a runaway teen he takes in from the streets, Henry realizes that he’s not alone in his life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

Kaye has molded a contemporary vision of people who become increasingly distant from others while still feeling the need to connect. He directs a stellar ensemble cast, anchored by an award-worthy performance from Brody, that features memorable roles by Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Betty Kaye, newcomer Sami Gayle, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, and Academy Award® nominee James Caan.
