Tony Kaye and Adrien Brody on "Detachment"

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Director Tony Kaye and actor Adrien Brody discuss working together on the film, “Detachment.” Brody plays a substitute teacher who moves around often to avoid getting attached, but that changes when he accidentally becomes a role model to the students at a public school where the teachers are burnt out and the students are apathetic. “Detachment” opens March 16 at the Empire 42nd Street and Village East theaters.

Dearest Leonard,

Love you & your show sempre. Thank you!
May I be so bold as to ask while your honored guests are there for you to pass on an audacious favor request?
...It's an idea for a fund raiser for the high school my daughter attends now. I've heard rumor it is Adrian's h.s. alma mater LaGuardia. There is a gala auction coming up mid May. Perhaps your gentlemen might be willing to donate tickets to a screening to their film. Or something...of their scheming,

Sincerely yours,
a public school parent

Where did Mr. Brody's dad teach? I had a Mr. Brody teach me English at Stuyvesant H.S. in the early 60's. He was a marvelous and influential, if eccentric, teacher and was a big influence on my 33 year career as a NYC English teacher.
