Searching (2018) – in cinemas from Friday, 14 September.

With inspired use of modern technology that the majority of the audience would be familiar with, Searching takes you on a journey through the story of a modern-day family. So well done is this use of technology, that you are mentally and emotionally drawn into the tale, and experience the highs and lows, as well as the tension as the plot develops.

Searching has a good story-line, which keeps you engaged from beginning to end and stands alone from the film's use of technology. The story and the use of technology to carry the story compliment one another very well.

After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.
