Critic Reviews for Trust: Season 1

Beaufoy and Boyle evidently had a great deal of fun creating and developing this series, which at times conveys a beguilingly dark and mischievous sense of humour.

While the production is lavish, the stylised, in-your-face storytelling and the patchy characterisation make Trust hard work.

September 13, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Written with smooth wit by Simon Beaufoy, and directed with under-the-radar flamboyance by Danny Boyle, it is everything a ten-part series about badly behaved rich people should be: silly, salacious and yet deadly serious.

It feels like Fraser has been ready and waiting to play this part. The actor hits each telling shift in Fletcher's casual nature just right.

[Donald] Sutherland is a natural in the role, the divisiveness and sarcasm seemingly part of his being.

Grim, sour and bloodless, Trust is a bummer.
