There’s a new clip for Tony Kaye’s Detachment with Adrien Brody. I can’t believe how long we’ve been talking about this film. Luckily it will finally be available via VOD, iTunes, and Amazon starting on Friday February 24 before being released to a limited number of theaters on March 16.
Once again, the synopsis:
"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.
Kaye has molded a contemporary vision of people who become increasingly distant from others while still feeling the need to connect. Detachment features a stellar ensemble cast, including Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, James Caan, and newcomers Sami Gayle and Betty Kaye."
The clip (courtesy of JoBlo) is called "ADHD" and focuses on Lucy Liu. It's a stunning commentary on the state of public education in this country. (How amazing is she on Southland this season? Fantastic addition)
