Trust is a controversial film but one that is relevant with the ever expansion of the Internet and the reliance, even hold it has on teenagers and the danger it opens from those using it for horrible intentions. The film is comparable to another film I watched called Megan is Missing and both share deep and disturbing content though Trust is much smoother, more consistent and most importantly far more effective.

THE MOVIE – 4.0/5

Plot: A suburban family is torn apart when fourteen-year-old Annie (LIANA LIBERATO) meets her first boyfriend online. After months of communicating via online chat and phone, Annie discovers her friend is not who he originally claimed to be. Shocked into disbelief, her parents (CLIVE OWEN and CATHERINE KEENER) are shattered by their daughter’s actions and struggle to support her as she comes to terms with what has happened to her once innocent life.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5

The only feature on this release is the theatrical trailer and trailers for other titles.

VIDEO – 3.5/5

Trust is presented in its original 2.35 aspect ratio and looks OK for a standard definition DVD. The black levels are alright and colors look fine as well. The detail level even for a DVD isn’t great but should be suitable for most.

AUDIO – 3.5/5

The Dolby Digital 5.1 is serviceable enough but it is a mostly talky film so all that matters is the dialogue is clear enough to understand. The rear channels get some use but it’s kept to a minimal with the most depth for the track coming via Nathan Larson’s dramatic score.

OVERALL – 3.0/5

Overall, Trust is a controversial film but one that is relevant with the ever expansion of the Internet and the reliance, even hold it has on teenagers and the danger it opens from those using it for horrible intentions. The film is comparable to another film I watched called Megan is Missing and both share deep and disturbing content though Trust is much smoother, more consistent and most importantly far more effective.
