Detachment Trailer

"Do you ever think about who your teachers are on the outside?" Tribeca Films has debuted the official trailer for Detachment, starring Adrien Brody as a substitute teacher who observes and chronicles three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students. The cast includes Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Lucy Liu, James Caan, Tim Blake Nelson, Marcia Gay Harden, Blythe Danner and introducing Sami Gayle as Erica. This looks like a dramatic but intensely fascinating study of what life is like "in school", for everyone, teachers and students. Give it a shot, it looks quite good!

A chronicle of three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers and students as seen through the eyes of a substitute teacher, who never stays anywhere long enough to form a bond with students or colleagues.

Detachment is directed by British filmmaker Tony Kaye, of the films American History X, Lake of Fire, Lobby Lobster and Black Water Transit previously. The screenplay was written by newcomer Carl Lund, who also produced. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and played at the Woodstock, Hamburg and Tokyo Film Festivals. Tribeca Films is releasing it in theaters starting March 16th this year.

Okay that was probably one of the best trailers I have seen in a long, long time. Simply perfect, the editing, the brief scene's of dialogue, and the music featured really made the trailer standout. Definitely going to try and catch this...the cast is awesome and hopefully the...Camera girl shines along with Gayle.

Couldn't agree more...I had goosebumps by the end.

with you, cred X! Tony Kaye has at times seemed as mad as a badger's handbag, but his films do tend to have a singular vision. this looks promising. colour me interested. the cast alone is quite stellar, and i will go into this highly interested and intrigued but also with no idea of how the story will play out or finish. great trailer, job done.

I love me some realistic classroom film. On that note, recommending Entre les murs (2008) wholeheartedly.

With triangle on this one. Didn't look all that. Interesting role for Lucy Liu though.

As a teacher, I couldn't be more eager!

Wow, looks to be both haunting and inspiring; based on the director, it mostly likely will shine in exactly those ways.

Alright I'm gonna gush just a little ency bit more...the shot of Tim Blake Nelson holding onto the chain link fence was awesome.

I was pretty impressed too. But I've got so into watching teen-witch dramedies these days that I doubt I could watch something this serious without crying. Aw what the hell, I'll watch it and weep like a baby.

I don't get it.  This looks awful.

 So sorry you don't get it.  Someday maybe.

"a tony kaye talkie"? Your master class in hip pretentiousness payed off.

I tried to see this at Tribeca Film Festival last year, but failed, as tickets for it sold out almost the instant they were released. Been looking forward to seeing it ever since.
