"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. Adrien Brody stars as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher, who roams from school to school, imparting modes of knowledge, but never staying long enough to form any semblance of sentient attachment.
