Cast: John Cho, Debra Messing
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.
