Tony Kaye's School Drama Detachment With Adrien Brody Gets Trailer

Adrien Brody stars as a troubled substitute teacher who comes to an under-performing inner-city school and the film hits iTunes next month.

Almost a year since it debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, a trailer has finally emerged on Apple for Tony Kaye's (American History X) new film Detachment which hits iTunes next month, before a limited run in U.S. theaters from Tribeca Films in March. The film chronicles a troubled substitute school teacher (Adrien Brody) who comes to an under-performing inner-city school. Christina Hendricks, Marcia Gay Harden, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, William Petersen, Lucy Liu and James Caan support in what almost sounds like a who's who of indie fare ensemble. You can watch the trailer below. For us we like the vibe, the interesting way Kaye has gone about shooting the documentary in a very naturalistic way and the power that Brody's performance and the overall message of the film might hold. This is only Kaye's third feature film since 1998's American History X, his first motion picture that hit major controversy after New Line and lead Edward Norton took the film away from him and recut it to match their vision. We all know the story, Kaye attempted to get his name taken off the film (he wanted it with replaced with the credit 'Humpty Dumpty') but didn't have any luck and then lost any credibility in Hollywood when he failed to please the studio and soon lost enthusiasm to make movies again. Once he was out of the spotlight for too long he found it hard to get back in and his follow-up thriller Black Water Transit has yet to see the light of day despite filming being completed three years ago and with names like Karl Urban and Laurence Fishburne toplining.
