Reese is impatient. She feels as if she's meant for something greater than her comfortable life she lives. She no longer trusts her father, and doesn't want to wait on him to give her the money. Her sister ridicules her in front of co-workers, and that's really the straw that broke the camel's back. She feels like she has to live up to the same image as her sister, and to her it's just too tall of an order to fulfill.
The acting was very good, and the characters were believable. Yes, I know that it's pretty rare to have a 10,000,000 inheritance, but with that aside-it's a very believable story line and character base. Jessica Rothe is an excellent Reese. She truly captures that "I'm meant for more than this" attitude. Louise Dylan's Audrey is exceptional. She's the older sister who longs for the attention and love she perceives her father giving to her younger sister. She's jealous, but she doesn't show it in the same way. She more or less wants her sister dealt with in a way she sees as being fit, and she wants to be seen as the winner, the best, the "good daughter."
The interpersonal dynamics were really good, and we were both drawn into the film. The background sounds and music were well done, without being overly distracting or anything of that nature. The suspenseful moments had us! Is Reese going to get caught up in her Boyfriend's illegal actions?! It's very well shot, well executed film!
The Study Guide was a great way for us to pause, and talk about what was going on in both the movie AND in our lives currently. I think we focused more on Reese's story than Aubrey, because there is much to be learned from Aubrey, as well. She too has sinned against her father, but in a different way. And she lets her jealousy get the better of her.
Trust Fund allowed me to instill the lesson that I will always be here for my niece, no matter what. No matter what she may feel, think, or be told-She ALWAYS has me, and she will always have a home here. Nothing is Greater than God.
