It has been a while since the last time I did a movie review. But Neal and I saw a film this Saturday that made me want to dust off my critic's hat.
"Trust" is the story of a 14-year-old girl who is seduced by a 41 year old Internet predator she knows only as "Charlie." The tragic incident almost destroys her family. While her father blames himself, Anne, the teenage girl, refuses to accept she has been the victim of rape.
I had many personal reasons to watch this movie. Although I have no children of my own, I know how important it is to keep all children safe.
I believe the Internet is a gift from God; a perfect example of how God uses people to continue his creation. Sadly, as every other wonderful tool at our disposal, the Internet can be used for evil. And it is used for evil more than we realize.
"Trust" shows us how a skilled predator can lure his victims into his web. Every parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt, or anyone who cares about children, should see this movie.
Starring Clive Owen, Katherine Keener, and Liana Liberato, "Trust" - a film by David Schwimmer (of "Friends" fame) is rated is rated R for sexual content and some violence.
This movie is playing in limited engagement in the Los Angeles Area.
"Trust" gets five stars in the "Bibi Scale."
It's not a happy or politically correct film, but I highly recommended it.
