Detachment (2011)

Directed by: Tony Kaye
Country: USA

Plot: A substitute teacher who drifts from classroom to classroom finds a connection to the students and teachers during his latest assignment.
Quick comment: 12 years after the acclaimed “american history X”, Tony Kaye’s “detachment” focuses on another eminent social problem. The issues and concerns faced by school teachers are presented. Their own personal problems are also a key factor and Kaye plays with it to manipulate our feelings. Demonstrating to be pretentious in many ways it has simultaneously the ability of grabbing some of our attention.
Relevant Awards: Audience award (São Paulo) and best artistic contribution (Tokyo).
