A homage to unplanned pregnancy & Adrienne Shelly

Catch it while you can: Trust (1990) airs on IFC today from 3:30 - 5:20 PM ET. It airs again 2/21/07 at 12:15 PM and 7:05 PM ET. (Those with DVR: now is the time to use it.)

This is a classic Hal Hartley film, starring Adrienne Shelly, a talented actress, and also wife and mother, who was murdered on November 1, 2006. Her untimely death sadly exemplifies the phrase "a life cut short."

In this offbeat comedy, Shelly plays a teenager who gets pregnant and is alienated from her family; she becomes independent and smarter because of it. Martin Donovan, her sexy co-star, is phenomenally intense in this film as well. Albeit his loner character is a touch crazy, he plays such a man. It also stars an early Edie Falco, pre-Sopranos.
