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.

Very moving. It really made me think about how I treat the people around me, and how at times I could treat them better. You don't know what someone else is going through.

i enjoyed this movie. I think there was alot of imagery used and accordingly, and I love the portrayals as depicted by the actors/actresses. I wonder if he took the permanent position?

One of the reviews here piqued my attention because of which I decided to watch it.....and man what a wise decision I made. A sunny day here in Atlanta and Im watchin this movie, dreamin of being a teacher some day - inspirting impressionable minds. Inspite of the f**kd up system in some stratas of society - shows how a teacher can heal a human soul. Truly reflective and has a great identity ! 9/10 and highly recommended. On a side note - never knew Adrian Brody could be such an awesome actor. On par with Matt Damon, Al Pacino and Ethan Hawke (from the before sun.. movies) !

this applies to everything, I'm willing to bet that if you'd ask Adrian, he'd tell you this was his favorite movie. funny how when some people hear or see the truth, all they say is how depressing it was and they prefer to "feel good"

Every movie Adrien Brody has been in, that I have seen, has been awesome and over-the-top as far as his acting and the feelings that each of his movies produce. He brings Drama to a superior level and this movie falls right into play with his past endevers. I wasn't going to watch this movie at first after reading the epaloge and some of the reviews that have been left but I told myself that Brody has never been in a movie that hasn't been worth watching. I am glad I gave this movie a chance and it did not let me down. It does play with your emotions. The plot is well written. The stories with-in the story are pieces of a great puzzle. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did for a Drama...9/10

Great film. sad,touching,but all around entertaining. It made it onto my recent favorite films list 8/10. If you enjoy movies for the stories this is your ticket.

Well written and good cast...Adrien Brody always delivers a powerful portrayal of a tortured soul.. Depressing and heart-warming to anyone who feels Empathy because it should be. If children ARE the future, we need better presents and not just on christmas.

OUTSTANDING FILM! Only one recommendation.... You should watch this on a sunny day, because the depression from this movie is contagious. Still, I recommend watching. 10/10

This is such an amazing movie! I'd highly recommend it to every one, and that they compare it to their own lives, and take a deep look at our self's and really decided if we are living our life to our fullest potential.

First time I watched, left me sad and confused yet something was telling me to watch it again and so I did. Now I've told everyone I know to watch it, twice of course, at least.

thats got to have been one of the saddest movies i've ever seen:(

Posted by rum_ukoro 3 years, 1 month ago

brilliant movie. really made me think about my own life. i love how, unlike most films, it doesn't only have one message, and each message is not obvious. i think every person will get their own message from it. personally i took from it that detachment only helps yourself and in the end will cause bigger hurts than if you put yourself out there, or at least form a few attachments. It's small but means allot to me. Also, like real life, this film successfully depicts the idea that 'you win some and you loose some' and whilst this may give the impression of being 'depressing', that's what life is like, and at i appreciate that i dnt get any false hopes like 'no matter where your from you can always have a happy ending', because in the end, when you realise this a big ol' lie, you will fall harder! 10/10
