Tony Kaye, the man who taught us the curb stomping wasn't a sick break dancing move, brings us Detachment in just such a mold. You can tell it's a very serious movie because Adrien Brody is sadder than a whole litter of fresh-kicked puppies for the duration of the trailer. And considering he makes out with Christina Hendricks, that's some PhD level acting right there.

Here's the obligatory plot summary:

Director Tony Kaye's (AMERICAN HISTORY X) long-awaited film DETACHMENT stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher who conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form a bond with either his students or colleagues. A lost soul grappling with a troubled past, Henry finds himself at a public school where an apathetic student body has created a frustrated, burned-out administration. Inadvertently becoming a role model to his students, while also bonding with a runaway teen who is just as lost as he is, Henry finds that he's not alone in a life and death struggle to find beauty in a seemingly vicious and loveless world.

Here's the list of "holy crap he landed a hell of a cast for this indie film" actors: Marcia Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, William Petersen, Bryan Cranston, Tim Blake Nelson, Lucy Liu, Blythe Danner, James Caan, and of course Adrien Brody.
