Review: “Broken Trust” explores the murky world of judicial corruption–the temptations for underpaid judges to take drug money to go easy on criminal defendants. It also focuses on the prosecutorial tactics necessary to trap corrupt judges and the ways in which overzealous prosecutors can do terrible damage. The central character, Judge Tim Nash (Tom Selleck) has financial and personal problems of his own when he’s reluctantly recruited by the federal strike force to run a sting on one of his fellow judges suspected of taking bribes. But things don’t go according to plan and the scheme spins wildly out of control. I thought the story was told with restraint and the moral ambivalence of the world in which it was set was convincingly depicted. There isn’t much of a love story in “Broken Trust” and not much violence, but there is a great deal of substance and depth in this film.
