Detachment, a 2011 drama, lays out one of the very real problems in our society today; the weak links in our education system. Adrien Brody, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2003 for the Pianist, will be co-starring with the talents of Lucy Liu, Christina Hendricks, and James Caan.
Henry Barthes (Adrien Brody) is a substitute teacher who has an innate fear of commitment, whether in his personal life or his professional life. Throughout the years, he has allowed himself to leave situations when he feels that he has become too invested in them.
But when he starts to work at a school that is floundering in every facet, he begins to realize that his talents are being wasted and that someone in this world might need him. As he starts to see life through the eyes of those around him, he begins to understand why staying might not be such a bad idea.
Directed by Tony Kate, the film was featured at least year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Luckily for Brody’s fans, the movie will be having a limited release this summer this march for moviegoers across the US. The winner of several different film awards, Brody’s latest work has mass appeal to all those who know the woes of commitment.
