DETACHMENT from Director Tony Kaye (AMERICAN HISTORY X) and starring Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody opens in New York today Friday, March 16, at AMC EMPIRE 25 VILLAGE EAST CINEMAS.
In the film, Adrien Brody plays Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher who conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form a bond with either his students or colleagues. A lost soul grappling with a troubled past, Henry finds himself at a public school where an apathetic student body has created a frustrated, burned-out administration. Inadvertently becoming a role model to his students, while also bonding with a runaway teen who is just as lost as he is, Henry finds that he’s not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.
DETACHMENT, the winner of Deauville Film Festival “International Critics Award” & “Cartier Revelation Prize”; Tokyo Film Festival “Artistic Contribution Award; Woodstock Film Festival “Maverick Award” (Tony Kaye); and Sao Paulo Film Festival Audience Award, also stars 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.
