Description

Detachment

Detachment is a 2011 drama film starring Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks, Marcia Gay Harden. Presented on DVD.

Adrien Brody stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry 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 soon becomes a role model to the disaffected youth. In finding an unlikely emotional connection to the students, teachers, and a runaway teen he takes in from the streets, Henry realises that he’s not alone in his life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

Critic Reviews:

  • " A gripping drama, Detachment offers a gut-wrenching look at the school system, as told by the unsung heroes–the teachers. " – Candice Frederick
  • " It's a film so well paced with a message so relevant that it deserves an audience bigger than what it got and it deserves more of an emotional impact than will resonant throughout. " – Ashley Norris
  • " Detachment is the sort of film-of-the-week that ought to appeal to anyone who loves movies in the purest sense. " – Graham Young
