Academy Award winner Adrien Brody is set to star in the upcoming Detachment, a film about a substitute teacher who puts all his energy into avoiding building significant relationships with his students and colleagues. From what we’ve read, Brody’s character, Henry, is a troubled soul with a somewhat dark past and is doing what he can to get by.
Take a quick read of the official synospis:
Director Tony Kaye’s (AMERICAN HISTORY X) long-awaited film DETACHMENT stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody as 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.
