Review

Trust Fund is a relevant movie in so many ways. It s the story of two sisters who work at their father s (Kevin Kilner) publishing company. They have two very different personalities. Reese (Jessica Rothe) is the creative one, a writer, who is also restless and has traveled to Italy. Audrey (Louise Dylan) is the practical one who is dependable and works hard at the company. When Reese becomes bored, she learns she has inherited five million dollars from her mother, who is now deceased. She transfers the money to an account in Italy without her father s knowledge and then leaves without telling him. In Italy, she returns to a relationship she had with a man named Milo (Sean Wing), who buys stolen diamonds with Reese s money without her knowing it and intends to sell them on the black market. When Reese sees the kind of man Milo is, she realizes she made a mistake and heads back home. Her father welcomes her with open arms and throws a celebration dinner for her return, but Audrey isn t so quick to embrace her prodigal sister s return. In time, Reese becomes close with a man she s known for a long time, Sam (Matt Kane), who just passed his law exam and is torn between moving to England or seeing where his relationship with Reese takes him. Also, Reese has her book published with the help of her father s new girlfriend, Meredith (Ana Ortiz). Soon Reese and Audrey realize they are better together than apart, especially when their father decides to sell the publishing company. The movie features themes of forgiveness, family loyalty, and following one s own heart. We are pleased to award it our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages 12-plus. --The Dove Foundation

Trust Fund deals with a few universal, relatable and timely issues including the struggles of following one's dream and becoming truly autonomous during these shallow times. Reese might seem like an unlikable character given that she took the money out of the trust fund without permission, but it's common for young adults like her to make irrational decisions that they later regret. The real question though is whether or not she'll learn from her mistakes and never repeat them. The screenplay by Sandra L. Martin doesn't quite answer that question concretely because Reese's father never punishes her for her wrongdoings. In fact, he's very forgiving---perhaps too forgiving. It could very well be that Reese suffers from affluenza because she doesn't seem to grasp that her actions have consequences until after to commits them. Does she have any genuine empathy? That question is up for interpretation. Either way, Reese comes across as a fallible young woman which makes her all the more human and relatable. Martin should be commended for centering the film around a female character who's not objectified but instead a complex human being. Jessica Rothe is very well-cast in the lead role, and has charisma---she's just a charismatic as Lola Kirke from Mistress America. The production values look quite impressive with slick cinematography, picturesque locations and a fast enough pace so that very few scenes drag. To be fair, though, the third act does feel a bit rushed with a few contrived twists and convenient, somewhat overly simplified, Hollywood-ish turns of events that won't be spoiled here, but those are minor flaws that don't take too much away from the film's entertainment value. Ultimately, Trust Fund is a captivating, well-directed and timely drama with a radiant breakthrough performance by Jessica Rothe. --The NYC Movie Guru

There s all kinds of opportunities. You just have to choose what you want, and what s worth waiting for. This quote is from the pleasantly surprising new film, Trust Fund. It is a mix of romantic and family drama with a little bit of an underworld cartel story and some humor for good measure. The story-lines flow well together like threads in a tapestry creating a beautiful work of art that is ultimately about love. The acting and writing is superb and well worth the time of anyone who loves love. The movie starts out a little slow as it sets up a few plot points, showing Reese and her sister growing up in a quick montage. As adults, Reese Donahue (Jessica Rothe; La La Land ) is an aspiring writer trying her best to live her life without having to do real work. Meanwhile, her sister Audrey (Louise Dylan; Beat Girl ) has been working hard for their father. Expect the two to clash over their different approaches to earning a living. After learning a secret that their father has yet to share regarding their mother s will, Reese takes it upon herself to get the money she thinks she is owed from her father s company and flees to Italy with her boyfriend. But paradise doesn t last long and she soon returns to face her father s love, which refuses to punish and instead gives another fresh start. Has she learned her lesson? Will this cause more problems with her sister? Will her past in Italy catch up for some extra third act drama? The second half of the film really picks up speed and shows that love can be powerful. --Red Carpet Crash
