From the Director of 'American History X' and the Producer of 'The Hurt Locker', Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody plays an emotionally remote substitute teacher who enjoys the ease of his ever-changing role, never having to engage too deeply with students or administrators. But when he is assigned to a dysfunctional public high school where the teachers are dispirited and the students wayward, he struggles to keep up his guard. As he imparts his worldview he inadvertently connects with his students and becomes a positive role model in an increasingly apathetic world. A raw drama that is as heartrending as it is compelling.
