In America they’ve got ‘To Catch a Predator’, a reality TV show that entraps men looking for underage sex. So full credit to ‘Friends’ actor David Schwimmer for directing ‘Trust’, an exercise in sober drama and a middle-class cautionary tale which explores a family ripped up by the roots after the rape of a 14-year-old girl. At its heart is a star-in-the-making performance by 15-year-old Liana Liberato as Annie, a smart, funny, slightly shy suburban kid who meets a boy in a teen chat-room.

The seduction is horribly plausible. This new friend tells Annie he’s 16. They flirt. He messages her a confession: actually he’s a college student. His age creeps up and when they meet he’s 40 and a nondescript clean-cut family man in dad-chinos. And an expert manipulator: ‘I thought you were old enough to handle this?’ Schwimmer deals with the rape, in a hotel room, sensitively – his focus is on the nuclear fallout in Annie’s family. Clive Owen and Catherine Keener play distraught parents, and both are predictably superb. This is thoroughly intelligent drama, though it will probably have to wait for a TV slot to be widely seen.

I have this situation to my 1 & only child, a daughter that she eagerly wants to have a boyfriend at her very young age... that supposed to be not yet possible. From 1st year high school till 4th year at her graduation she lie. I just hope that this film will relate to all teenagers especially the girls. Because 1 mistake will marked to all of their life & also to the parent.

I think allot of parents who don't have a clue about online threats should view this film. It can be hard to watch at times, but it has something important to say & David's direction does the story justice. Great acting throughout; especially from the young female lead. Not sure it's a movie you would purchase but a single viewing is essential as few films dare to touch these topics. I would go for a three star rating as it's nothing groundbreaking, but it is a very well made film none the less.
