Movie Info

Trudy Walker (Clara Bryant), known to her friends and family as "Tru," is a girl in her early teens who would like to be a broadcast journalist. Trudy has a twin brother, Eddie (Shia LaBeouf), who is developmentally challenged as a result of oxygen deprivation during gestation. Tru has long been torn between her love for her brother, her difficulty in understanding how to help him, and her guilt over the fact he was born challenged and she was not. Tru's conflicting emotions are not eased by the fact her mother (Mare Winningham) often seems emotionally distant and her father buries himself in work to avoid the issue of his son. When a local cable access channel sponsors a contest for student filmmakers, with the winner getting their own weekly television show, Tru decides to make a documentary to enter in the competition. Trying to settle on a subject, Tru opts to make a film about Eddie, and in the process takes a long, hard look at her brother's problems and accomplishments which gives her a whole new perspective on his life. Produced for The Disney Channel, Tru Confessions premiered on April 5, 2002.

Audience Reviews for Tru Confessions


For it being a Disney Channel movie, this was extremely good. You just feel really bad for this family and the daughter who apparently had no life to herself. Shia Labeouf was extremely good at playing a mentally challenged brother with puppy dog eyes. While it isn't all that reputable outside made-for-tv movies, it's still very well done.

This was heart-warming from beginning to end! I loved this movie, not because it only kept me interested, but because the filmmaking on a small disney movie is wonderful. This film is perfect!
