From Amazon.co.uk

A much-loved cult favourite often overlooked by the mainstream, Trust is a hip, witty film that stretches the definition of a "romantic comedy". Hal Hartley's quirky, minimalist masterpiece--miles ahead of such later attempts as Amateur and Henry Fool--comes from the same school of offbeat character studies that launched better-known directors Jonathan Demme (Married to the Mob, Silence of the Lambs) and Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco). Trust, like more conventional romances, tells the story of a blossoming relationship between two souls who are lost without each other--but the resemblance to ordinary love stories ends there. Matthew Slaughter (The Opposite of Sex's Martin Donovan) is a loveable, overeducated misanthrope (he always carries a hand grenade, as he says, "just in case..."). He's matched brilliantly with spoiled ex-cheerleader Maria Coughlin (Adrienne Shelly), a pregnant high-school dropout going through a full-blown existential crisis, largely because her allowance is being cut off. As their lives intersect, they are united by their bitter cynicism--twin pessimists condemned by their dysfunctional families and the shallow suburbanites around them ... and, despite their best efforts, destined for true romance. If you never thought brutally dry humour could be laugh-out-loud funny, then this is one movie you need to see. --Grant Balfour

Format: DVD
So I've given the film five stars. You'd expect a glowing review. And you'd be right. But only because in the world of Hal Hartley, if you're to see one film, then choose this one. Hartley can have a habit of repeating itself. The first four films are undoubtly the best and since 'Amateur' you might be forgiven for feeling you've seen it all before. The themes may change but the language of his films doesn't. So trust me. Before you become immune to the Hartley way of seeing things and his coversations restrict rather than liberate, then watch this one; compact, amusing, thoughtful, sharp, deadpan and with a Martin Dovavan whose grumpiness only makes you love him more.
Oh, and for Adrianne Shelley, who sadly is no longer with us.

It's simple. Trust. And yet it is the hardest thing to do.

Trust in others. Trust in yourself.

The characters that are forced into each others lives in this beautiful, touching and sensitive film are compelled to look at their own life, their own situations and also that of the other. Beautifully acted in gobsmacking plainness is Adrienne Shelly and Martin Donovan (a man I would sleep with!), with Hal Hartley's dead-pan screenplay, it is pure enjoyment, and widely funny. It's not a comedy aimed for the lazy brain, but an attempt to show us what people are capable of doing given the right circumstances at the wrong time. It's the best portrayal of messed up youths done in an anti-John Hughes way, especially of a young girl's 'growing-up' that is at it's core and truly inspirational.

Teenager Maria Coughlan (beautifully portrayed by Adrienne Shelly) is thrown out of her home by her tired and frustrated mum after becoming pregnant to the High School jock, and for slapping her dad moments before his fatal heart attack. She meets up with disillusioned Matthew Slaughter (wonderful dead-pan humour by Martin Donovan). He carries a hand grenade and a few classic books around contemplating all sorts. Their meeting of chance sets them up against each other's fears and accomplishments unachieved, Maria being the one who carries through a great deal of choices she makes in the right direction to turn her life around. Matthew attempts to reunite with people in general and work, but is overcome by the apathy of others, and in turn becomes apathetic. With a missing baby in the news, they try to find out the reason behind it and solve this mystery while solving their own.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Stuart Burns VINE VOICE on 18 July 2008
Format: DVD
Watching Hal Hartley's Trust has reminded me of just how the independent film `industry' was in the early nineties before the big studios began to control production. Hartley's is a singular voice; like the great auteurs his films with their understated acting, lyrical dialogue and deserted suburbia paradoxically offer a more realistic evocation of the human condition than the costume dramas and self-consciously post-modern movies that clogged up the release schedule that saw that decade out.

Here, we find a meeting of misfits; twentysomething Martin Donovan lives with an abusive father and sometimes repair televisions, teenage Adreinne Shelley causes hers to have a heart attack when she reveals her pregnancy. As the film progresses he learns the simple life from her and she realises that there's more to life than fashion and boys and as the title suggests they learn to Trust one another. It's the incidental details of their personalities - he carries a grenade `just in case' and she is trying to find a baby snatcher - which provide the most pleasure.

It's also just refreshing to see a film with such a spare style, with long takes at allow the actors room to do their job without the camera restlessly rolling hither and thither, or an editor with an itchy splicing finger. Much of the film happens in two shots and though this is probably a function of the budget, they're never less than interesting and much of that has to do with being in the company of these players, Donovan and Shelley in particular. The latter is simply amazing, perfectly capturing the girl's developing maturity, a process completed in a final heartrending shot.

Format: VHS Tape
This film is described above as a black comedy but while it is funny and clever it is also so much more than that. Hal Hartley shows us that you can be extrodinary in the most mundane of circumstances and that we can all live our live as we choose to. What makes this a great film is the quiet and understated way the story is told, that along with every drama real live has a tendancy to carry on around you. Where Hollywood would have made this into an over blown, over acted morality play, Hal Hartley acknowledges that his audience is intelligent enough to enterpret the story themselves. We do not need to be manipulated into identifying with these caracters, we take tham as they are and and are all the more endeared to them because of this. Take a chance, let this movie into your life and see how you find yourself showing it to everyone you care about.

Arrrr, I waited some time for this movie to come out on DVD. It's one of his best. There's sex and death, love and hate, industrial sabotage and abduction and all while one of the main protagonists is still of school age. It's brilliant. You want to laugh and cry all at the same time. The characters are so life like that they jump out of the box. It's a beautiful love story that goes exactly where it should - nowhere. A must see for anyone interested in films and life.
