If Frank Borzage had survived to see the end of the Reagan Era, hated television, and took the gruff-but-gentle romance of Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young in MAN'S CASTLE and set it in suburban, blue collar Long Island in 1990, he might have made a movie like TRUST. Adrienne Shelly stars as a high school senior whose mother accuses her of killing her father. When she meets Martin Donovan, an electronics whiz who can't hold down a job and lives alone with his abusive father, she's looking for a place to stay, and the two heroes quickly find they have something the other one needs. TRUST is as moving, subversive, and funny as it was in 1990, simply the kind of movie we have to show to you.
