Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood play police officers who follow a trail that leads directly to a custom bank-style vault built into the back room freezer of a small grocery store. They put a plan into motion to rob the vault and split whatever they find inside. But by the time they figure out what the vault contains, it is already too late to turn back. (R – 93 minutes)
Directors Alex and Benjamin Brewer must have known that all you have to do to make a great movie is put actors Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood in a room together and give them some meaty characters to chew on. That is essentially the formula for “The Trust,” a new thriller in which the two stars portray corrupt cops who attempt to pull off the perfect heist. Cage is crazy good as someone with no conscience whatsoever while Wood is an ideal foil as he struggles with the morality – and potentially dangerous consequences – of their actions.
