Tony Kaye; director of the critically acclaimed film American History X returns to screen with Detachment, a film starring Adrien Brody as a lonely, emotionless substitute teacher. The film instantly differentiates itself from other classroom focused dramas with its stylish cinematography.
Adrien Brody‘s sadly innocent performance probably also weighs in, making the film feel a little more important. Detachment takes a good look at our flawed educational system and while the material sounds dull, I’m willing to bet the performances alone will make it worth a watch.
Also starring James Caan, Bryan Cranston and Christina Hendricks.
Detachment opens in limited release on March 16th, 2012.
