Detachment -- D: Tony Kaye S: Adrien Brody -- 3/16/12

Director: Tony Kaye (American History X)
Cast: Adrien Brody, Bryan Cranston, Lucy Liu, Tim Blake Nelson, Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks

Synopsis: Adrien Brody stars 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 hes not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

This looks good, plus I'm intrigued by another picture by Tony Kaye. American History X is one of my all time favorites

This movie is a bunch of good stand alone scenes, but has no soul, no depth. It's okay, but not great.

I really enjoyed this film. The performances were outstanding. What a heartbreaking film.
