New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: Sword of Trust

By Andrea Thompson

“Sword of Trust” is an odd little film, and sadly will now be director Lynn Shelton’s last due to her unexpected death this month from a blood disorder. Calling her film small is by no means an insult, however. Much like 2007’s “Waitress,” another final film from a female filmmaker whose life was tragically cut short, “Sword of Trust” quietly and firmly keeps a tight focus on its characters in a small Southern town.
