We’ve been given this brand new and exclusive clip for Detachment which is brought to us by the same people who Produced The Hurt Locker. Detachment is directed by Tony Kaye (American History X) and has a fabulous cast which includes Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks, Marcia Gay Harden, James Caan, and Lucy Liu.
This new clip from the movie gives us a look at Marcia Gay Harden being bullied into stepping down from her role as headmistress in the school.
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.
Detachment is released in UK Cinemas 13th July.
