Trash is a 2014 Brazilian-British adventure drama thriller film directed by Stephen Daldry and written by Richard Curtis, based on Andy Mulligan's 2010 novel of same name. The film stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, and Selton Mello.
Trash follows three Brazilian street teenagers; Raphael, Gardo, and Rat (Jun-Jun) who spend their time picking through litter in the hope of finding useful waste. One day they discover a wallet whose contents will bring them into conflict with the brutal local police force as they find themselves unlikely whistleblowers in a city rife with corruption. Rather than turn the wallet over to the authorities for a reward, the kids seek the knowledge of a priest, Father Juilliard (Martin Sheen) and an NGO-worker, Olivia (Rooney Mara).
