Within Trust, the two main characters Maria and Matthew have an interesting relationship. I feel from a shallow viewpoint one can see a creepy thirty year old man desperate for a woman. He needs someone to commit to him because he feels it is the time to marry in his life and would take a depressed and fragile seventeen year old to fill this position. If we were to look at it in almost deeper sense, there is the hope that this plot was not the director's intentions. Matthew can parallel Mersault in the sense of pushing the boundaries of human nature. They are both complex in the sense that they perceive the world in an almost emotionless way and yet in the same instance simple because they objectify their observations and do not allow the complications of feelings. Matthew does this by not expressing any feeling or emotion, he for the most part goes through his day with a lack of motivation. When he meets Maria, it seems that he has found something in his life that is not routine, he has found a sense of purpose. It is as if it's something he could potentially have feelings about. Maria is also looking for direction. She is a young girl who is pregnant and a drop out, she gradually begins to understand the need to change her life. Matthew brings a sense of structure in her life. He represents a possible future that could entail not so much, happiness, but something different, something that is for the most part honest. I feel that these two are meant for each other because they both share something, providing security for each other, which is what entails the key component to trust itself.
