Searching Movie Review:
Searching! A 2018 American tech-thriller movie, written & directed by Aneesh Chaganty in a novel technical way.
A missing teen.. typical leads and misleads, money drawn from the bank and the mysterious texts to the uncle about having had fun.
So, what makes SEARCHING a different film? The whole movie is on a computer, laptop or smartphone screen depicted via social media and modern digital technology. (This technique was used by the same team couple of years ago on a short movie called Noah) . The 102 minutes of picking the digital trail we leave behind and how nothing in our life is a secret anymore. Google search, Emails, Facebook, Tumblr and YouCast helps a father unravel his missing daughter’s life. The window to our lives is the hard disk!
The plot revolves around a father and daughter who barely cope on losing a loved one. The girl disappears from her favourite scenic spot and a well drawn chase leads us through couple of dead ends to an ex convict.
Searching Film Cast & Acting:
John Cho as the father and Michelle La as the daughter wrap you in their story like its your own. The detective Debra Messing, assigned to the case is too good to be true and allows the father to help in the investigation and helps him handle grief as well.
Searching is a movie that portrays intense revelations about how important it is for parents to know about their children’s lives, their friends, passions especially what the children do or want when they are unhappy and upset. It’s important even for young adults to know that their secrets are never safe!
