Directed by well-known Friend’s series actor David Schwimmer, Trust shows us the dangers of online predators, starring Clive Owen (Inside Man) and Catherine Keener (40 year old virgin).

Trust is a cautionary tale about a 14-year-old high school freshman named Annie, played by Liana Liberato, who is groomed and seduced by a boy she believes to be around her age named Charlie (Chris Henry Coffey). Like most young girls entering adolescence, when presented with flattering attention from boys it makes them feel wanted in a way they might not have experienced until then. Charlie admits to some earlier false claims but still manages to win Annie around and convince her to meet him at her local mall. Upon meeting Charlie, Annie discovers he actually isn’t at all what he has previously said.

Charlie assures Annie that the age-gap between them means nothing, and she is a mature and smart young woman, luring Annie into a trance like false pretense in which she feels she can’t get out of.

Trust is about much more than the monsters lurking on the web but also depicts the relationships of confidence, hope and trust between parent and child

David Schwimmer’s directing is phenomenal and the performances are brilliant and really make the film work. Each character is realistic with Liana portraying amazing talent and Clive Owen doing worthy work as Annie’s father whose reactions to the actions upon his daughter are nonetheless typical of any other father’s. He wants the man brought to justice, he wants to beat the hell out of him, and he wants to just take back what the man did to his daughter.

Trust serves as an important reminder of one of the Internet’s most perilous downsides, executed with great sensitivity and deep psychological understanding. If you’re looking for a powerful thriller with a difficult subject, Trust is that movie.
