Citing “disturbing material involving the rape of a teen, language, sexual content and some violence,” the Classification and Rating Appeals Board upheld the R rating given Trust. The David Schwimmer-directed film for Millennium Entertainment is a drama about a family’s struggle to deal with tragedy after their underage daughter is lured by an online predator and attacked. Schwimmer wanted a PG-13 rating and argued that the film is a cautionary tale that should be seen by teens who could be vulnerable to such approaches. The appeal was argued by executive producer and financier Avi Lerner as well as George Gale, the veep of post-production for Nu Image, which produced the film. Schwimmer told Deadline he did not want to cut the films, but he will have to if he doesn’t want to release the film with an R. The film stars Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.
