Movie Info

When Cynthia & Mary (Jillian Bell & Michaela Watkins) show up to collect Cynthia's inheritance from her deceased grandfather, the only item she's received is an antique sword that was believed by her grandfather to be proof that the South won the Civil War. The two attempt to unload the object to a curmudgeonly pawnshop owner (Marc Maron) & his man-child sidekick Nathaniel (Jon Bass). When Mel and Nathaniel discover there's a black market for the relic, the two pairs reluctantly join forces to sell this rarefied 'prover item' to the highest bidder. The adventure that ensues takes the four of them on a wild journey into the depths of conspiracy theory and Southern disillusionment.

Critic Reviews for Sword of Trust

All Critics (100) | Top Critics (28)

Poised between Christopher Guest and Mike Leigh, Lynn Shelton lets talented performers develop their characters, and it grounds the heightened premise to keep us in their side.

This is a hangout movie -- and I like hanging out with these people.

October 1, 2019 | Full Review…

For a comedy about an old weapon with a dulled blade, Sword of Truth is razor sharp in just about every way.

August 1, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's equal parts spry, improvisational comedy and salient social commentary.

July 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Even when Maron is playing someone who is the saddest and most cynical person in the room (and maybe the whole town), he is a brilliant reactor who delivers pithy comebacks and wry observations with pitch-perfect timing.

July 19, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

A smart, politically barbed comedy about truthiness and consequences.
