On Tuesday night, the Cinema Society corralled a coterie of big names in the East Village for the premiere of Detachment, the new schoolyard drama from American History X director Tony Kaye. Chic was on hand, weaving through the tightly-packed crowd, wondering: What class should high schoolers take on the regular?
Jane Rosenthal: "How to tweet and what to do on social networking. At 15, you have no clue how to manage your online profile or what that means."
Robert Verdi: “Passion. Not sexual passion. There should be courses to teach kids how to be passionate and interested and how to push themselves. Being well-rounded is what makes people interesting. I hate when I talk to people who can’t speak on politics, education, the war, health care reform, the elderly…You should have an opinion on every subject.”
Tony Danza: “Civics, because we have to learn to be good citizens.”
Betty Kaye: "Ethics. It's not interesting, but it's very important."
Lucy Liu: “Students should have a twenty minute period when they go into the auditorium and have a forum to say what’s on their mind or just be quiet and meditate.”
Adrien Brody: "Major physical activity. I'm not talking about 'gym.' I'm talking a real phys-ed class."
Sami Gayle: “There should be a class on manners and how to be nice to others.”
