Trust (2011)



Critic Consensus: Director David Schwimmer gets some gut-wrenching performances out of his actors but he still lacks the chops to fully ratchet up story tension.

An exercise in sober drama and a middle-class cautionary tale which explores a family ripped up by the roots after the rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Movies for the Masses

Schwimmer directs with sensitivity and restraint, and gets excellent performances from his cast. Owen pulls off some heart-wrenching scenes, although it's Liberato's revelatory performance as the emotionally confused teen that holds the film together.

Movie Talk

Schwimmer's matter-of-factness becomes a dose of bald reality in the second half of the film... two scenes of concentrated fury and anguish... are among Owen's best work ever.

Audience Reviews for Trust

Schwimmer really makes us empathize with his characters and directs this disquieting drama with a remarkable confidence, never letting the plot become exploitative or trivial, but the third act gives in to some unnecessary conflicts and the resolution is a bit clichéd.

Good Story about young people and modern day internet problems, ie facebook, my space if you have a daughter under 17 might pay to watch this. 4 stars

Good job David Schwimmer! This movie deals with a side of sexual assault from a predator that most don't know about. Take it from me, it happens. It happened long before the internet came around, but the internet just made it easier. This story is a powerful one, and portrays how it can devastate entire families. Very well done. Great acting. ..Stay for the credits. It shows a glimpse in how these sickos can be anyone in your life...a family member..a teacher..a neighbor..etc.
