Storyline

A struggling agent for child actors and former child star himself, Howard Holloway spends years losing his most talented clients to his slick, arch-nemesis Aldo Shocklee. Until the day that Howard encounters the brilliant and unsigned 13 year-old Lydia who is on the brink of securing the lead in a new Twilight-style franchise. Howard tries desperately to close the deal of a lifetime and make his precocious young client a star while managing her drunk, volatile father, Aldo's relentless poaching attempts, and the hostile machinations of the project's casting director and mega producer, who both despise him. But the closer he gets to achieving the Hollywood score he has chased all his life, the more complications appear. Written by Production

Quotes

[first lines]
Howard: Did you ever think some deep down place that you were really something else? And if you could just strip away that filthy ditch shell you've been walking around, you'd be reborn. In something new. Something more beautiful that anything ever imagined.

If you're considering watching this movie - watch it; it's very good!
24 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Trust Me' wasn't at all what I was expecting at first but I was definitely not disappointed. Since watching it, I have recommended to friends who have also liked it. We've also enjoyed discussing the various themes presented. It's interesting how many of those themes overlap from the movie to real life and into other situations. I always enjoy a movie that makes me think.

Most of the actors are familiar faces; well-known from both TV and movies yet that did not distract from the story in the least. The young actress, Saxon Sharbino, is really good. I had never seen her in other roles but she nailed it. I hope she'll have a bright future in the business. What most impressed me is how Clark Gregg not only starred in but also wrote and directed this movie. I liked his many references to past actors and shows too.

Getting movies made is not easy so I really appreciate actors who push to get their movies made and are willing to take small roles in lower- budget movies. It give us more options. Big budget blockbusters can be fun at times but they're often too formulaic, which I find boring. Some rely heavily on fillers like car chases, explosions, violence, sex scenes, and special effects. All of those things are fine but, I feel, they should support a really good, well-written story.
