Help #FindMargotKim in this new trailer for social media thriller Searching


Share This Article:

Taking place on the screen of a laptop, Searching is a thriller clearly moulded to the twenty first century, where a proportion of our lives now take place on the computer.

When David Kim (John Cho)'s teenage daughter, Margot, goes missing, he resorts to searching through Margot’s laptop to find clues about her whereabouts. Told through a collection of facetime calls, messages and Instagram posts, we get an intimate look into Margot’s world, as her father tries to piece together evidence and uncover the secrets behind Margot’s seemingly perfect life.

With John Cho in the starring role, Searching will be the first mainstream thriller in Hollywood with an American-Asian actor as the lead. The film also stars Debra Messing, perhaps known best for her long stint as Grace Adler in Will & Grace.

Despite being director Aneesh Chaganty’s first feature-length film, Searching could be the story our social media dependent society needs. Scoring an impressive 85% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, this novel portrayal of our lives on the internet could be a turning point in cinema.
