I must admit [Schwimmer's] done a solid job with this queasy drama.
April 1, 2011
Online predator targets teen in mature, creepy drama.
April 1, 2011
The script is blaring and obvious at all times, and in his second directorial effort, David Schwimmer doesn't have a clue how dull it is for the audience to endure scene after scene of anguish, crying and screaming matches.
April 1, 2011
There is no denying that Schwimmer knows something about getting a performance out of an actor. Liberato, who is 15 now, is flat-out terrific.
March 31, 2011
Schwimmer's handling of the multifaceted emotional and psychological terrain on display here is delicate and utterly compassionate.
March 31, 2011
The mantle of social relevance can be a heavy one, but "Trust," a smooth drama about a girl's seduction and rape by a middle-aged Internet predator, is neither preachy nor hysterically overreaching.
March 31, 2011
Unfortunately, this well-acted cautionary tale is hampered by a lack of visual finesse and a script (by Andy Bellin and Robert Festinger) in need of a narrative rethink and a dialogue polish.
March 31, 2011
The claustrophobic film offers a strange anti-catharsis; it's all tension and frustration with no crowd-pleasing release.
March 31, 2011
It's easy to imagine how this story could have been exploited and dumbed down. It works instead with intelligence and sympathy.
March 31, 2011
A poignant drama about a vulnerable teenage girl, a manipulative pedophile on the Internet and a loving father who is forced to wrestle with his explosive emotions
March 31, 2011
An episode of To Catch a Predator that confuses itself for In the Bedroom.
March 31, 2011
He's adept with actors, but Schwimmer has yet to locate his strengths behind the camera.
March 31, 2011
There is a better place for films like David Schwimmer's Trust than a theater, and that place is the Movie of the Week slot on broadcast television
March 31, 2011
Director David Schwimmer depicts the ease of online deception with terrifyingly plausibility.
March 29, 2011
Afterschool Special stuff, but the ensemble rings quite true in their coping processes, as director David Schwimmer proves adept at tracking rogue emotions that no closing Ordinary People clench can satisfactorily resolve.
March 28, 2011
Actor-helmer David Schwimmer makes an ill-advised shift into Afterschool Special territory with his sophomore feature, Trust.
March 28, 2011
This theme is well-drawn, and the film plays out with great intensity as Owen's character grapples with the fact that the daughter he loves might have changed forever.
March 28, 2011
A thought-provoking film that manages to incorporate horrifying information without feeling like an after-school special...thoughtful, disturbing.
March 23, 2011
David Schwimmer's sophomore effort as a director is a tour de force of socially relevant dramatic filmmaking.
March 16, 2011
Chilling, compelling and compassionate - this cautionary tale is so realistic and provocative that it should be 'must' viewing for families with teenagers.
