All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (4)

  • "A Fragile Trust" lays it all out, sometimes in manipulative ways, but always with clarity, so that you understand what happened and how it happened.

    April 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Lightness of touch is missing from the film, which features animated graphics and an ominous score.

    April 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Director Samantha Grant chronicles an ignominious but fascinating chapter in modern journalism in this solid doc.

    April 10, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • On the most basic level, [Grant] tells a clear and thorough story about the most damaging plagiarism scandal in the history of America's flagship newspaper, and about the ambiguous and troubled individual who sparked it.

    April 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It's a swift, vivid movie, but 10 years past the scandal, not much is new.

    April 10, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While mostly well made, and certain to serve as a handy prcis for the J-school set, A Fragile Trust is more a soiling reminder than a revelation for anyone already familiar with Blair's case.
