✪✪✪½ /5

Directors: Stephen Daldry, Christian Duurvoort (co-director)
Writers: Andy Mulligan (based on the novel by), Felipe Braga
Stars: Rickson Tevez, Gabriel Weinstein, Martin Sheen

Andy Mulligan's novel paved way to the Brazil's answer for "The Slumdog Millionaire" in 'Trash'.Alike the Dani Boyle's Academy Award winner SDM,Trash too have  a story developed in the slums of Rio.The poverty,corruption and bad cops are a reason for this movie.Or else,how would 3 young dwellers became a point of interest by the influential politicians?

  The kids Raphael,Cardo and Rat were under Police's radar as soon as they had evidences on a corrupt politician who had been contesting for Mayor position.The wallet found by Raphael was enough for the problems to start chasing 'em.Though they were illiterate,poor kids,they had to keep their helplessness aside and run for their lives.At times,they had to be astute in order to uncover the mysteries too.

  The cat and mouse game between the kids and the authorities is the main theme of the film.Except the 2 known names in Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen,lots of unknown actors were part of this Brazilian-British project.There were scenes at times where brutal force had been applied on 'em.But the stubbornness in them was enough to be called them as the so called heroes of the movie.

Last note:Watch this adventure -action movie for energetic perfo from the youngsters who had their heart in the hands to make it a good flick.
