American English X

Watching the below trailer, and knowing that the director also did American History X, I have a good idea on how this film will go.It also has the feeling of something like any of the other films that have been made in the last 10, or so, years about teachers teaching a disruptive class. I'm sure that it will magically work out in the end for both the teacher and class...

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 administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry soon becomes a role model to the disaffected youth. In finding an unlikely emotional connection to the students, teachers, and a runaway teen he takes in from the streets, Henry realizes that he’s not alone in his life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

Kaye, moulding a contemporary vision of people who become increasingly distant from others while still feeling the need to connect, directs a stellar ensemble cast from a script by Carl Lund. Anchored by an award-worthy performance from Brody, Detachment also features memorable roles by Christina Hendricks, Academy Award nominee James Caan, Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, Tim Blake Nelson, Bryan Cranston, William Petersen and newcomers Betty Kaye and introducing Sami Gayle.
DETACHMENT will be released by G2 PICTURES in cinemas on 13th July 2012
