We just got the first trailer, poster and three clips for Tony Kaye’s upcoming drama, Detachment, a chronicle of three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students as seen through the eyes of a substitute teacher, starring Adrien Brody, Bryan Cranston, and Christina Hendricks.
Here’s the synopsis from the film:
Detachment is a chronicle of three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of a substitute teacher named Henry Barthes. Henry roams from school to school, imparting modes of knowledge, but never staying long enough to form any semblance of sentient attachment. A perfect profession for one seeking to hide out in the open. One day Henry arrives at his next assignment. Upon his entry into this particular school, a secret world of emotion is awakened within him by three women. A girl named Meredith in his first period. A fellow teacher Ms. Madison, and a street hooker named Erica, whom Henry has personally granted brief shelter from the streets. Each one of these women, like Henry, are in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.
Additional cast include Marcia Gay Harden, William Peterson, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, James Caan, Betty Kaye and Sami Gayle.
Slated for an February 2012 release, Detachment was written by Carl Lund.
