Search­ing

Cast: John Cho, De­bra Mess­ing

Paradise - - Living | Movies -

A teenage girl goes miss­ing in the dead of night and her fran­tic fa­ther must join forces with a de­ter­mined de­tec­tive to solve the mys­tery and hope­fully bring his daugh­ter back alive. Sounds like a solid premise for a Hol­ly­wood thriller, al­though one you have prob­a­bly seen a dozen times be­fore. With pop­u­lar ac­tors like John Cho ( Star Trek) and De­bra Mess­ing ( Will and Grace), there’s good rea­son to go see it any­way, but what makes Search­ing so spe­cial? The movie takes place en­tirely within the con­fines of tech­nol­ogy. Never leav­ing the in­ter­face of a com­puter screen, Search­ing un­folds across we­b­cams, What­sApp, Face­book and Face­time as the dad files through desk­top fold­ers and Google search his­to­ries in the hunt for clues. Search­ing is a unique and cap­ti­vat­ing film with a fas­ci­nat­ing mys­tery at its cen­tre. Full of twists and turns, this is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that uses mod­ern tech­nol­ogy to push its story to places that have been pre­vi­ously thought im­pos­si­ble.
