'Trust' trailer: A harrowing tale of an online predator from, yes, David Schwimmer
The new trailer for the upcoming indie drama Trust (out April 1) sets up a story destined to haunt any parent of a teenager taking her or his first steps into the wild frontier of online social networking: Loving parents (Clive Owen and Catherine Keener) buy their 14-year-old daughter (Liana Liberato) a new MacBook Pro for her birthday. While online, she quickly finds a hunky and sweet high school junior in California — or so she thinks — and just as quickly falls hard for him. Then he suggests they meet. Bad idea.
The film was produced and directed by David Schwimmer, whose last film — the screwball comedy Run Fat Boy Run — was a far cry from this somber, thoughtful project, which opens April 1. But as Schwimmer told EW in 2008, while he was still developing Trust, the actor’s been on the board of the Rape Foundation for several years. “I have learned a lot firsthand with the child victims of sexual predators,” he said. “I think it’s a public health issue, and I have been thinking of this movie for the last three years.” Check out the trailer below:
