    A diabolically well-made film about a 14-year-old girl who's raped by a pedophile who grooms her with online chats and sexts.

    One of the most chilling things about Trust is how well it lays out the grooming strategies used by expert predators.

    David Schwimmer has made one of the year's best films: Powerfully emotional, yes, but also very perceptive.

    Honestly, all teenage girls must see this film. "Trust" is a serious and emotional film that you should discuss with your family. Hopefully, teens will learn something from this film after watching it. Full Review »
