SEARCH­ING

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CULTURE -

DI­REC­TOR: Aneesh Cha­ganty

CAST: John Cho, De­bra Mess­ing, Michelle La Play­ing out al­most en­tirely on a com­puter screen, we are given a hacker’s eye view into the on­line lives of David (John Cho) and his daugh­ter Mar­got (Michelle La). Com­mu­ni­cat­ing through brief text mes­sages and jumpy FaceTime calls, their frag­ile re­la­tion­ship is sud­denly shat­tered when Mar­got goes miss­ing. We were fully ex­pect­ing to tire of this thriller’s gim­micky use of tech but in­stead, it adds an ob­ses­sive ur­gency to David’s fran­tic search.
