DETACHMENT is Director Tony 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 who has a true talent to connect, yet has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently never stays 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 emotional connections to students, teachers, and a runaway teen, Henry realizes he's not alone in his 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.
