We don’t need to go into the ins and outs of parenthood and the joy of parenting, the list is endless. In Searching, John Cho experiences every parent’s worst nightmare when his child goes missing. Nearly 2 days since the disappearance of his 16 year old daughter he decides to take things into his own hands. All through her Laptop!
Searching hopes to play on the dangers of technology and the world wide web. We know technology gets more advanced year by year, it’s that powerful it snoops on us. Using the technology we get what looks an intriguing, compelling film presented in a slightly different way than usual.
Sony Pictures Releasing is also playing on the technology/Social Media side of things and released the new second UK Trailer. It’s not the usual Youtube version but one for facebook…
