In director Tony Kaye’s (American History X) DETACHMENT, Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent for connecting 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..
The film features a stellar ensemble cast, including Academy Award® winner 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..
DETACHMENT premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and was the winner of several festival awards, including the International Critics Prize & Cartier Revelation Prize at the Deauville American Film Festival, the Grand Prize & Audience Award at the Festival de Cinema Valenciennes, the Best Artistic Contribution Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Săo Paulo International Film Festival. Tony Kaye received the Maverick Award at the Woodstock Film Festival..
