Movie Trailer Tuesday - Trust

This movie freaked me out and was a little difficult to watch. Annie is a teenage girl with a loving and happy family. She becomes involved in an online friendship with Charlie, a kid from out-of-state that she seems to have a lot in common with. When she secretly agrees to meet up with Charlie in real life, she learns that he's not the person he portrayed himself to be. It's pretty scary how easily this seemingly smart young girl agrees to meet this person and even after learning his true identity, still agrees to hang out with him. Also, just the fact that kids today are so willing to chat online with virtual strangers - SCARY! As a mom to a teenage daughter myself, I like to think she would never do anything so dangerous. But, this movie shows us it can happen. Just another reminder that we parents need to closely monitor our kids' online activities.

Rated R for disturbing material involving the rape of a teen, language, sexual content and some violence.
