Storyline

In Director Tony Kaye's Detachment, Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody stars as Henry Barthes, an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out ... more

Great movie30 October 2015

The cinematic experience is unique, soundtrack is mind-blowing and rides along with the movie at a perfect pace.
Adrien Brody does an extraordinary job at sharing sentiments that are impossible to verbally communicate.
This movie should be played in every school, it should be mandatory.

very good thought-provoking film.
really important issues handled beautifully by excellent script, direction and actors.
I'm a huge Aiden Brodie fan and he is perfect in this.
Most of the film is pretty bleak and very sad but also offers hope.
Teachers should definitely watch this.

I thought this was an okay movie. Just so-so but worth watching at least once.

Incredible performances from the cast, but Detachment is perhaps just too pretentiously depressing for its own good.

Adrien Brody stars as a despairing substitute teacher who nevertheless connects with kids at a failing school. His resolve to keep his distance falters amid all the unhappy... more

Did not think that I would like this when it first began but I always try to watch a movie through to the end. Highly intense documentary style film. I was not disappointed with it at all. Great actors. Loved this movie... worth the download. Not family friendly- graphic language.

Detachment gets to you. It hits hard.23 May 2012

Everywhere you turn in Detachment, someone is trying to make you feel like hell. Even at its most ludicrous - when it is shouting into your ear - its sheer audacity grabs your attention. The movie's motives might be admirable, but its execution is so bogged down in impenetrable old-white-guy... more

really worth watching, extremely real & honest portrayal of what has happened to the educational system & what teens are going through. Tough watch at times when you realise that this is what's going on, but you really feel more educated about the whole thing. It makes you appreciate growing up... more

Touching, Raw, Insightful21 May 2012

Some brilliant, poignant dialogue i.e. the doublethink scene.

The overall message to me - remember your humanity. We all have our vulnerabilities. We're all the same at the very crux of it.

Totally worth the watch, especially if you're up for an intensely moving and real experience.... more
