After the first 15 minutes, you can already feel that the movie is falling apart by itself, going so many directions all at once. I like the way it was filmed and edited, and Adrien Brody gives a solid performance as a substitute teacher with a dark past. But overall, Detachment lacks depth.

It would be amazing if it were true - that Admiral Horatio Nelson's (Lawrence Olivier) success during The Battle of the Nile came about due to the help of the wife of the British ambassador to Naples, Lady Emma Hamilton (Vivien Leigh). Nelson wanted the ambassador to request aid from the King of Naples in the form of troops and supplies. Nelson was anxious to mobilize quickly against Napoleon. The ambassador told Nelson to be patient because it would take some time to get an audience with the King...a week perhaps. Lady Hamilton overhears all this and secretly tells Nelson that she could get the troops and supplies in a *snap of her fingers* because she will be having tea with the Queen of Naples in 10 minutes. "Everyone in Europe knows that the real King of Naples", she tells Nelson..."is The Queen"!!! Vivien Leigh is simply captivating in this. She has never looked more beautiful and radiant...even in black & white...and she just outshines everyone. I think I do appreciate these historical dramas more as I grow older and this is one of the better ones I've seen. Due to the prevalent production codes, the film is unfortunately somewhat restraint in what can be depicted despite it's subject matter of adultery...but it makes up for it with a smart and very adult script for it's time. The story focuses mainly on the scandalous love affair between Lord Nelson and the young trophy wife of a British ambassador, Sir William Hamilton (Alan Mowbray). Although Lady Hamilton enjoys her station in life as wife of an ambassador - her marriage to the much older Sir Hamilton is passionless. The film tangentially follows Lord Nelson's rise to national hero status but doesn't depict any of his battles save one - the fateful Battle at Trafalgar. Lawrence Olivier's handsome face is somewhat hidden behind make-up in this... as Lord Nelson was wounded in battle resulting in a scarred forehead, a "dead eye" and amputated hand. "They told us of your victories - but not of the price you've paid", says Lady Emma after reuniting with Nelson after the battle of Tenerife. The production values are quite high. The sets and costumes sumptuous. You may miss the wartime propaganda message if you weren't looking for it. The film was released in the early part of 1941. The parallels between Napoleon and Hitler are intentional. The aid that England was seeking from the Kingdom of Naples was a cue for the United States to possibly help out England too...but events a few month later - of December 7 - would make it a moot point. 9
