Searching took a page from the 2014 horror movie Unfriended. The perspective throughout the entire movie is from a computer screen. The gimmick is done much better in Searching, but let’s all hope it dies with this one.
Searching is about a father looking for his missing daughter. He combs the internet and his daughter’s computer hunting for clues about her disappearance. This detective drama takes many twists and turns until its final conclusion. It leaves you wondering how much of your life is out there on the web for people to find, and whether that is a good thing or not!
