Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Schwimmer directs this smarmy Hot Topic drama with empathy for the craft of acting but less interest in the craft of making a movie move."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"An excellent screenplay and fantastic performances make Trust one of the year's best films."
‑ Billy Tatum, We Got This Covered
"Schwimmer directs with sensitivity and restraint, and gets excellent performances from his cast. Owen pulls off some heart-wrenching scenes, although it's Liberato's revelatory performance as the emotionally confused teen that holds the film together."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Schwimmer directs with intelligence and a minimum of hysteria, deftly handling the shifts in atmosphere this creepy story requires."
‑ Jason Solomons, Observer [UK]
"Audiences most definitely will squirm and wish they were anywhere but in the theater, despite the fact that it features some of Clive Owen's best work and a startling movie debut by the 15-year-old Liana Liberato."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Prurient, ham-handed and amateurish."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"A film that every parent and teenager ought to see."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Schwimmer's matter-of-factness becomes a dose of bald reality in the second half of the film... two scenes of concentrated fury and anguish... are among Owen's best work ever."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Even if it's a mite clunky, Trust does a decent job and avoids the regulation happy ending."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"What Trust conveys, at its best, is that ultimately parental protections are not foolproof, and that is the greatest horror of all."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"I must admit [Schwimmer's] done a solid job with this queasy drama."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader

‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"For the most part this is a well acted, intelligent attempt to explore a tough topic."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"A gripping, if at times melodramatic, family drama."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
