“Trust Me” Synopsis:

Clark Gregg, popularly known as Agent Coulson in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” starred in this dramatic-comedy as Howard Holloway. Howard was himself a child actor but a failure at that one. He was now an agent who was looking for a potential protégé to lead to stardom and earn him fame as well. Aldo Shocklee, on the other hand, was Howard’s nemesis. He would take any clients from Howard who might take off.

Soon after, Howard not only found a protégé through the likes of Lydia, a 13-year-old aspiring actress, but his neighbor Marcy agreed to go out with him. In the process, as Howard was close to fulfilling his Hollywood dream, he started to realize that Lydia was not what he thought she was.

“Trust Me” Review:

As of this writing, the critics from Rotten Tomatoes gave this film a 56%, as revealed in the Tomatometer. Moreover, 78% of the moviegoers would like to watch this film.
