[7.00/10] Trust (2011)

Trust (2011)

QuickRating: Its 'child abuse through the internet' subject matter may already feel a bit dated, but "Friends"' own, David Schwimmer, does a surprisingly solid job behind the camera, delivering a dramatic, gripping and disturbing, if a bit too obvious first-time directing effort, that works mainly due to the smooth pacing, moving story, and strong and dedicated performances from the incredible Clive Owen and the rising star Liana Liberato.

I had no idea David Schwimmer had become a director. Interesting.

Have not heard of this, I've been so out of it movie news wise. I trust you to always steer me in the direction of diverse films, though. :) I will definitely give this a shot.

Michale, you didn't? He may turn out a better director than he's an actor.

Nebular said...

Mel, no you have. :) I think you'll be engaged by this one. It's very entertaining, but be aware, it's also quite grim.

I thought this movie was great. It was sort of a different take on the subject but it was interesting to watch, very emotional and some great performances. David Schwimmer is definitely a better director than actor, he should have changed sides a long time ago!

Nebular said...

Michele, I agree it was very good, though didn't think the subject matter had a different take. I've seen it all before, just not that well-made. :)

Thanks for the comment.

I haven't heard of this. I will have to check it out. I'm interested to see what Schwimmer has up his sleeve. As for the story it sounds like a Lifetime channel movie, which I embarrassingly like so I will probably like it, haha!

Nicole, you'd never guess that the goofy Schwimmer has directed this seriously disturbing flick. The premise is so yesterday, but the execution of it is spot-on.
