Watch: Promo Trailer for David Schwimmer's New Indie 'Trust'
Although actor David Schwimmer was loved on "Friends" as Ross, his filmmaking career hasn't been as illustrious, to say the least. Schwimmer's first film was the 2007 romantic comedy Run Fatboy Run, which I didn't really care for. He's following that up with a new drama/thriller called Trust, starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener as parents of a daughter (played by Liana Liberato) who is targeted by "an online sexual predator." "We're chatting Dad…" This is so painfully cheesy yet trying to be scary at the same time, I'm not impressed, at all. Why isn't this straight-to-TV? Watch a new promo trailer (via The Playlist) below.
Watch the first trailer for David Schwimmer's Trust:
Schwimmer departs from his comedic roots in this drama that examines the aftermath of a young girl's seduction by an online sexual predator. Owen and Keener are perfectly cast as the grieving parents, but newcomer Liberato's slow-burning self-realization and climactic breakdown is undeniably heartrending.
Trust is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker David Schwimmer, who last directed Run Fatboy Run as well as some episodes of "Friends" and "Little Britain USA" most recently. The screenplay was written by first-timer Andy Bellin and Robert Festinger (of only In the Bedroom). This is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. Trust does not have a US distributor yet, but will likely be picking one up at TIFF if it all goes well.
