Tony Kaye’s first feature since American History X — a movie he didn’t even want his name on — Detachment has received an international trailer that shows off the performance of Adrien Brody. This is about eight months after the education drama hit the Tribeca Film Festival to a mixed response (Jordan liked it, however), so it’s only fitting that I have difficulty grasping the direction things could go here.
If anything about this preview really stands out positively, it has to be Brody getting an opportunity at a better role — something he’s been derived of for longer than you’d think. But, on the other hand, we have Kaye‘s odd, Friday Night Lights-like sense of direction, which I’m not terribly fond of in any form. That could be a problem down the line, though I’d like to focus on the positive here. On that note — hey, Tim Blake Nelson!
Watch it below (via ThePlaylist):
Also starring Christina Hendricks, Lucy Liu, James Caan, Marcia Gay Harden, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Blythe Danner, Tim Blake Nelson, William Petersen, and Bryan Cranston, Detachment will hit sometime next year in theaters and on VOD.
