Stop neglecting his needs
How do you see me?
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.
