This film is recommended for mature audiences.

A suburban family is torn apart when 14-year-old Annie (Galveston native Liana Liberato) befriends "16-year-old" Charlie (Chris Henry Coffey)  online. After months of communicating via chat and phone, Annie discovers that her new boyfriend is not who he originally claimed to be. Her parents (Clive Owen and Catherine Keener) are shattered by their daughter's actions and struggle to support her as she comes to terms with what has happened to her once-innocent life. Trust is directed by David Schwimmer

The May 16 presentation featured an introduction by screenwriter Andy Bellin and a Q&A session afterward. Bellin had been studying for a master’s degree in astrophysics when he discovered a love for poker. He left school to play semipro poker for a decade and in 2002 published his first novel, "Poker Nation." His articles have appeared in Esquire, Details, and Maxim, among other publications. Bellin also served under George Plimpton as an editor at the Paris Review. "Trust" is Bellin's first produced screenplay. His wife, Kate, is the daughter of Houstonians Susie and Sanford Criner.
