Detachment, the movie

Detachment is a movie which is critical of the high school education system in America.The story tells the experience of a substitute teacher in a public school and his interaction with his teenage students.

This is a tale laden with humanistic implications coming from the teacher’s personality; his idealism and principles not only clash with the tough reality that the teenagers are living, but also with the lack of efficacy in the school system.

Rough at times, tender at others, through the eyes of the teacher (Adrien Brody as Henry Barthes) the watcher is invited to see the current problematic situation in American schools.Detachment is directed by Tony Kaye, and stars Adrien Brody with an ensemble supporting cast.
