Troubled substitute teacher Henry Barthes (Brody) is brought in to a failing school to teach English. Having previously managed to maintain his distance, here he forms a genuine connection with both the pupils and the staff, who include a love interest (Hendricks) and a cynical mentor (Caan).
Incredible performances from the cast, but Detachment is perhaps just too pretentiously depressing for its own good.
