Conclusion: Trust is a rather bizarre experience. The characters are fascinating, and some of the writing is very sharp, but there's also a kind of smarmy, unseemly aspect to being asked to laugh at such hapless folks.
Excerpt: Trust has a lot to talk about. It’s all uncomfortable, Annie (Liana Liberato) chatting with someone whom she believes is her online boyfriend. Her parents think it’s casual teenager stuff, letting Annie be.
Conclusion: Trust is a frightening and oftentimes difficult movie to watch, but despite its many challenges and adult themes, it might just prove to be enough of a shock to the system that could save others from experiencing the horrors of online predators.
Excerpt: A revenge drama minus the revenge, the David Schwimmer-directed Trust portrays the impotent rage of wanting to right a wrong that has no legal recourse. The claustrophobic film offers a strange anti-catharsis; it’s all tension and frustration with no crowd-pleasing release.
Summary: Trust gaat over Annie, de veertienjarige dochter van Will en Lynn. Op internet komt Annie in contact met Charlie, een leeftijdsgenoot met dezelfde interesses. De twee krijgen in de digitale wereld een hechte band, maar dan bekent Charlie dat hij gelogen heeft over zijn leeftijd.
