Trust Fund ~ Movie Review

My family and I love to watch movies. We also love it when we get to see a movie we had not heard of before. We also love when the movie is family friendly. We were able to review the movie Trust Fund by Mapelle Films.

Trust Fund is a modern day, contemporary Prodigal Daughter story. The movie is about the Donahue family- Grayson (dad), Audrey (sister), and Reese. Reese is a young writer but likes to do things her way. Her father has a successful publishing company which he started with his wife, Audrey and Reese's mother, who has passed away.  Reese doesn't want her father to publish her book because she wants someone else to take notice of her. She eventually lands a deal and is given an advance of money.

Reese finds out her mother has left her and her sister a trust fund worth $10 million to be divided between her and her sister. Because Reese has no money (she spent her advance), she decides to take matters into her own hands. She sets up an account and has the money transferred. She then takes off for Italy where she runs into big trouble.

Reese comes back and begs her father for a job at the publishing company. Grayson is just so excited that she has returned that he gives her a job. Her sister is not so happy. She can't understand why her father is happy. She was the one to stick around and be responsible but her father seems to be ignoring her.

As the movie progresses, we learn more about the Donahue family and the Donahue family learns more about love. Will Audrey and Reese become friends? What happened with their mother's trust fund?

The cinematographer/producer was a homeschooler from 1-12 grades back in the 1980's. You can read more about him here.

We enjoyed watching this movie together as a family even though it is more relatable to female teens. We spent some time discussing the movie after we watched it. My boys did watch it but found it to be boring. My almost 12 year old daughter (who is more in the age range for the movie) found some parts better than others. She will probably enjoy it more in a few years when she is in her mid teen years. In addition to the movie, there is a downloadable study guide and also a book, Love Was Near, for reading after watching the movie.
