  • While the caper plot has its moments, I kept hoping "Trash" would do more than treat its setting as some curiously unexplainable foreign planet.

  • A diverting two hours, and an excellent reminder of the wide world of stories out there waiting to be told.

    October 9, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • An intensive, propulsive political thriller representing a tautly executed return to form for director Stephen Daldry.

  • I left the screening having almost fainted from sugar shock.

  • Trash gets hung up on the "teaching" part-looking to inform the well-off about the struggles of Rio slum-dwellers-and for too long forgets that Mulligan's novel provided a pretty good plot.

  • Comparisons to "Slumdog Millionaire" are inevitable, but the kinetic "Trash" has a rhythm all its own.

Audience Reviews for Trash

  • Jun 19, 2015
    Now and then it does offer some insight into the country's social inequality and police brutality, but as a whole this is a cheap fantasy filled with nonsense (like a villain that seems more like a psychic) and naive optimism to make poor people believe that it is easy to have a happy ending.
