Posted by Ra Moon

Trust is a fiction based in the real kidnapping in 1973 of John Paul Getty III by the Italian mafia, heir to the Getty oil empire. The young boy was wrongly convinced that his family would pay a substantial ransom for his release.

The renowned director of Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire Danny Boyle is telling the same story that Ridley Scott did for the cinema last year in 2017 drama All the money in the world, each with different points of view. Leads the cast Donald Sutherland as the tycoon J. Paul Getty, Harris Dickinson stars as his nephew, Hilary Swank is the mother Gail Getty, and private investigator James Fletcher is performed by Brendan Fraser.

Trust was filmed in England, Rome and in some of the less visited regions of Italy, the forgotten Calabria and Basilicata in the south. Here is a spoiler-free list of some of the most relevant and magnificent filming locations of the series:
