Empowering and enlightening. Trust is a film that every parent and teen should see - together.

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.

A film that every parent and teenager ought to see.

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.
July 10, 2011
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
Even if it's a mite clunky, Trust does a decent job and avoids the regulation happy ending.
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.
July 7, 2011
Liana Liberato is superb as the girl sinking by slow degrees into the "trust" of the title.
July 7, 2011
Committed performances and a masterful first act bolster this structurally flawed handling of an impossibly tricky subject.
July 7, 2011
Schwimmer, for all his film's limitations, deserves a lot of credit for finding a gifted actress the same age as his central character, and sculpting Liberato's blazing, wounded, needy and all-round award-level performance into the gem it is.
July 7, 2011
Owen and Keener give excellent performances, while newcomer Liberato is a significant find. Yet for all its power and understatement, Trust is only a few clicks away from sexploitation.
July 7, 2011
Any parent of a teenage child, but especially those fully aware of how technology is opening doors to strange places like never before, will find Trust a deeply disturbing watch.
July 7, 2011
It may not change your life, but it may just make you wonder what your child is up to on that computer, and just who he or she is "talking" to.
