Detachment: Detachment is a chronicle of three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of a substitute teacher named Henry Barthes. Henry roams from school to school, imparting modes of knowledge, but never staying long enough to form any semblance of sentient attachment. A perfect profession for one seeking to hide out in the open. One day Henry arrives at his next assignment. Upon his entry into this particular school, a secret world of emotion is awakened within him by three women. A girl named Meredith in his first period. A fellow teacher Ms. Madison, and a street hooker named Erica, whom Henry has personally granted brief shelter from the streets. Each one of these women, like Henry, are in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

Adrien Brody is brilliant. I was spellbound by his performance. 5 stars all the way. I can't believe I hadn't seen this before. The scenarios and characters really resonated with me in a very particular way. REALLY enjoyed this. Watched it twice in a row. 5/5

This movie gave me a bit of a culture shock. I didn't know how I should sympathize with the characters because I couldn't find much of a personal connection with them. Simply put, the characters were a tad bit too extreme. Where I live, such unruly behavior is very rare. Nonetheless, this movie raised a lot of questions about our deteriorating societal values. Though it did not present any answers, it really made me think.

Wonderful movie with real life situations. Don't miss it unless you want an action movie, this is a thinker and a keeper.

Excellent movie, different style. Shows you teachers are humans too. I never heard or seen a trailer for it before watching today. I was very surprised by the cast, a lot of famous actors that just show up in the movie lol.

I have never experienced a more powerful, emotional, gutt-check of a film as this. It is masterful in drawing you into the lives and minds of the charecters, which can hit all to close for some of us. It does not ever let you go, right up until the end you are a part of this film. This is a must watch if you can dare see yourself, see society, see the evils and the good in all people, not just teachers and children. I have not teared up over a film in ages, but I did in watching this. 10/10

This a solid, well acted drama about a school teacher who has issues of his own trying to juggle life with teaching at a tough school. If its a feel good film you are looking for, then this is not the movie for you. This film is essentially about our humanity, how our lives and the lives of others affect other people. I would rate it 3.5/5.

Its a good movie but is unnecessarily contrived. The same point could have been made in a much more succinct. Having said that its a good watch if u have the stamina for it

Adrien Brody deserved some recognition for his very well acted role. You get involved with the story and when society surrenders it's impossible not to feel responsible for the events taking place...4/5.

This movie was about more than something as trivial as entertainment this was about life's truths.Its effect was profound.Painful and dark as it was it is ultimately a inspiration.I am glad I came across it and highly recommend it.
