Product Description

From director David Schwimmer, comes Trust, a gripping, haunting thriller featuring outstanding performances from Academy Award Nominees, Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.

Safe and sound in her suburban home, 14-year old Annie (Liana Liberato) meets her first boyfriend online. After months of webroom chat and phonecalls, Annie discovers her friend is not who he originally claimed to be. Shocked in to disbelief, her parents, Will and Lynne (Owen and Keener) struggle to come to terms with what has happened to her once innocent life. The devastating revelation sets in motion a chain of events that forever change their lives as Will fights to bring about his own kind of justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars In some ways, a true horror film 23 Sep 2012
By OEJ TOP 100 REVIEWER TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A film for our times: online grooming and, in legal terms, paedophilia. A 14-year-old girl seeks an outlet from her problems at school by developing a relationship with someone over the internet, someone who claims to be much the same age as she is. In reality, he is 35, and when they meet he lures the girl to a motel. The rest of the film centres mainly on her father's frustration with the slow police investigation and his attempts to take the law into his own hands.

Because the subject matter is so realistic, there are fleeting impressions that this is as much a dramatised documentary as it is a conventional film, but in the end it just about gets away with it as dramatic fare - thanks in so small part to the convincing performance of the girl at the centre of the story (played by Liana Liberato). Although there is no explicit material in visual terms, this is very much an adult tale and I suppose of particular interest to parents of teenage girls, for whom this might be regarded as their worst nightmare. The second half of the film focuses mainly on the deteriorating relationship between the father and his daughter, and his wife's accusations that he is more concerned about retribution than caring for their daughter's recovery.

I'm not a fan of horror, but this in its way is as horrifying as anything within the genre, because it is so very realistic. This kind of thing most definitely does happen, there is no fantasy element here. I wasn't completely convinced with the choice of Clive Owen as the angry, vengeful father, but he does as good a job as he is able. The script is very good and in just about every way it tackles the issue correctly, sticking to outcomes that are far more representative of real life than the depths many films of this kind tend to descend to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinarily brave 19 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
Hats off to David Schwimmer for having the courage to tackle an ubiquitous problem in the Internet age that I am sure many other directors, and no doubt most producers, would balk at attempting. The bottom line is that this movie is about paedophilia, so don't expect to be entertained.

I thought the acting was exemplary, particularly from Liana Liberato who plays Annie. It's a hugely mature project and a credit to modern cinema - not as entertainment, but as a timely reminder that the world can be an extremely cruel place and that we need to focus on what matters, i.e. caring for each other, instead of living in a technological bubble.

There is a scene which almost crosses the line, but I am sure the director and producers were well advised as to what was important to portray and what might have been seen as inappropriate.

This topic is highly relevant to any family with an Internet connection. There are predators out there and they are not few in number. As the film cleverly alludes to, we're not talking about seedy men in anoraks hanging around on street corners.

The story is tragic in every sense. It portrays a hugely destructive event that traumatises the entire family for which time probably never heals. The message? Get your kids smart.

I would go as far to say that this should be compulsory viewing for young people old enough to view the film as an educational tool. And that goes for parents too.

We watched this film with our Facebook obsessed 13 year old. The storyline relates to the online and finally off line relationship between a young girl and a man who turns out to be substantially older and more predatory than he first appears. Some of the scenes are challenging and a bit shocking but certainly not gratuitous.

Both she and we found this brilliantly directed film an eye opener in terms of the risks of online relationships. I found the film both enjoyable and challenging and highly recommend it.

The very last scene is particularly powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet, powerful drama 29 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
I'm surprised at these conflicting reviews. This is an incredible film, fantastically directed by David Schwimmer.
The storyline: a young girl (brilliantly played by Liana Liberato) is manipulated by someone she trusts. This is a very small part of the story, the rest makes for necessary (if raw) viewing: the after effects! How an event (such as this) can destroy families, friendships, futures.

Be warned there is no resolve, no happy ending, no someone getting their revenge. It's honest film.
The most defining part of the movie comes when the father (Clive Owen) confides in a colleague. The viewer is left reeling: he 'groomed' her, she knew the him, she agreed to go a motel with him - therefore it's not really an attack, it's not really rape, "it could've been worse" says the colleague. Well no, not really: Just because it's not a stranger in a dark alley with a gun doesn't make it any less of a sexual assault, any less of a crime. "She's 14".

The outcome is truth we all face: we cannot protect or shelter ourselves and (especially) those we love from the world, from getting hurt (because we ALL do),
"The only thing we can do, is be there for each other when we do fall down and pick each other up." This was the most powerful lesson that I took away from the movie.

I believe David has very successful career ahead of him as a director, you sense he opened his heart when making this film, drawing the best from his crew and the actors; Clive Owen and Catherine Keener are brilliant (their portrayal of broken parents, unable to protect or shoulder the burden of pain for their children, it's exactly what we all would do, how we would all react if it were our child.)

I recommend this movie to anyone who loves someone in their life more than they actually love themselves (I hope that's everyone)
