Adrien Brody stars as a substitute teacher who avoids emotional connections by continuously moving around in Detachment, directed by Tony Kaye (best known for his public battle with New Line Cinema over the editing of American History X). Tribeca Film is releasing Detachment on Movies on Demand beginning February 24, 2012 followed by a limited theatrical release on March 16th, and they’ve just released the official trailer and poster for the drama shot in 2010 and screened at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
More on Detachment:
Brody is Henry Barthes, “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.”
The cast also includes Christina Hendricks, James Caan, Bryan Cranston, Marcia Gay Harden and Lucy Liu.
