Gateway Drugs is a monthly film series that's looking to get you hooked on some of the cinema's great auteurs. Brought to you by Amy Young and Ashley Naftule, the folks behind the Prizefighting Kangaroo film podcast, Gateway Drugs will screen a film from a different director each month. After the screening, Amy and Ashley will lead a discussion about that film and how it represents that director's style and body of work.
Popularly regarded as one of the essential American Independent films of the 1990's, Trust is a romantic comedy told with Hartley's characteristic verbal dexterity and mordant wit - an hilarious and moving analysis of family violence and the moral courage it takes to defeat it and assume faith in others.
"cool, strikingly original" Hal Hinson - Washington Post
