So many people talk about our “Internet footprint”, how everything we do online is logged, tracked and traced at a moment’s notice… with all that in mind can someone who has been living so on-the-grid actually disappear without a trace? How long would their lost ones be searching for? How easy could someone disappear these days?
After David Kim (John Cho– Star Trek: Into Darkness)’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.
Judging from the trailer alone can be fraught with difficulties and potential spoilers for any movie- just check out my views on that here– however just from the trailer, Searching is full of tension, energy and such a modern take on the genre.
The only downside is having to wait until August 31st. I guess I’ll be searching…
Until then, to help you (and myself) check out the trailer:
