Even if it's a mite clunky, Trust does a decent job and avoids the regulation happy ending.
July 7, 2011
The whole section of the plot dealing with Will's shame and rage at failing to protect his child is hammily and unconvincingly acted.
July 7, 2011
Committed performances and a masterful first act bolster this structurally flawed handling of an impossibly tricky subject.
July 6, 2011
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.

Audiences most definitely will squirm and wish they were anywhere but in the theater, despite the fact that it features some of Clive Owen's best work and a startling movie debut by the 15-year-old Liana Liberato.

What Trust conveys, at its best, is that ultimately parental protections are not foolproof, and that is the greatest horror of all.

It is also moving, thoughtful and a lot more insightful than most of the dramas dealing with the issues it tackles.

An excellent screenplay and fantastic performances make Trust one of the year's best films.

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.

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.
July 10, 2011
For the most part this is a well acted, intelligent attempt to explore a tough topic.
July 10, 2011
Schwimmer directs with intelligence and a minimum of hysteria, deftly handling the shifts in atmosphere this creepy story requires.
July 8, 2011
A gripping, if at times melodramatic, family drama.
July 8, 2011
This is a very good, thoughtful film and an important one.
July 8, 2011
Trust centers around a horrible event, but it's the uncomfortable shades of grey - as well as the outstanding performances - which make it smart, original and utterly compelling.
July 8, 2011
This is all very worthy and well acted but it does feel like a cautionary tale designed to provoke classroom debate.
July 8, 2011
Great performances and an intelligent treatment of a hot topic. Profoundly moving.

Liana Liberato is superb as the girl sinking by slow degrees into the "trust" of the title.
