Director Tony Kaye’s (AMERICAN HISTORY X) long-awaited film stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher who avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry soon becomes a role model to the disaffected youth. In finding an unlikely emotional connection to the students and teachers, Henry realises that he’s not alone.
