“Searching” was released to theaters in the United States on August 24th, 2018.

The movie involves a father, David Kim (played by John Cho), whose daughter, Margot Kim (played by Michelle La), goes missing. He ends up having to look into his daughter’s social media to try to find any clues to why or how she’s disappeared. During the movie, he works with detective Rosemary Vick (Debra Messing) as she is the detective assigned to his daughter’s case.

As the entire movie is from the perspective of electronics, movie goers will be surprised by the clever use of technology in bringing the plot line to life. Unlike “The Blair Witch Project” and “Unfriended” movies, “Searching” is original, intelligent, and witty in it’s use of social media and the Internet to solve the mystery. Like most psychological thrillers, its full of twist and turns. However, unlike the usual predictable crime films, it leaves movie goers guessing until the very end.

I liked this movie because it kept me guessing. Every time I was sure I had it all figured out, another curve ball piece of information came around and I was back to square one. I would definitely recommend “Searching” and may even return to the theatre to watch it again in hopes of finding new clues. I would rate this movie 10/10. Great acting, intense storyline, and creative filming make “Searching” the movie you’re looking for this weekend.
