The internet is a dangerous place for young people with predators lurking around every corner, well that’s what the scare-mongers will have you believe. It also makes a pretty good starting point for a film focusing on the effect that a sexual assault of a minor can have on a family.

Such is the subject of David Schwimmer’s new drama Trust, starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener as parent whose 14-year-old daughter, Annie, meets a kid online who turns out to be a paedophile.

The new poster for the movie (courtesy of IMP Awards) takes the brave step of leaving the stars off in favour of a thought-provoking image of a scared/scarred Annie.

Schwimmer has shown promise behind the camera since leaving Friends behind. Hopefully this will be the movie that we all hoped The Lovely Bones would be.

Synopsis:

Safe and sound in their suburban home, Will and Lynn Cameron (Clive Owen and Catherine Keener) used to sleep well at night. When their 14-year-old daughter, Annie, made a new friend on-line – a 16-year-old boy named Charlie – Will and Lynn didn’t think much of it. But when Annie and Charlie make a plan to meet what happens in the next twenty-four hours changes the entire family forever. Charlie is really a 40-year-old serial paedophile (Tom McCarthy) and, once Annie’s rape comes to light, it becomes a touchstone event that reverberates through the entire family.
