The Brit List: ‘Frozen Planet,’ Katherine Jenkins, The Wedding Present (March 16, 2012)
7. British director Tony Kaye’s Detachment out in NY
Detachment first landed on American shores at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and garnered high praise for Adrien Brody‘s performance as a substitute teacher observing the decline of the American education system. The talented cast – Christina Hendricks, Tim Blake Nelson, Bryan Cranston – provide layers of complexity and emotion to this small but powerful film directed by Brit Tony Kaye (American History X, Lake of Fire).
