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.

For the most part this is a well acted, intelligent attempt to explore a tough topic.

Schwimmer directs with intelligence and a minimum of hysteria, deftly handling the shifts in atmosphere this creepy story requires.

Even if it's a mite clunky, Trust does a decent job and avoids the regulation happy ending.

A gripping, if at times melodramatic, family drama.

This is a very good, thoughtful film and an important one.

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.

This is all very worthy and well acted but it does feel like a cautionary tale designed to provoke classroom debate.

Great performances and an intelligent treatment of a hot topic. Profoundly moving.
