About this Film


ODEON says...
When Margot goes missing after a study group at school, her father David begins desperately ‘Searching’ for a way to find out what happened to her. When the police investigation doesn’t learn anything, David looks in the one place nobody’s checked yet: Margot’s laptop.

Frantically following her digital footprint before she disappears forever, he discovers that he knew his daughter much less well than he thought.

Laptop lap it up

Reviewer: Derek WinnertDate: 2018-09-12

If you are searching for an old-style thriller in new-style disguise, Searching is for you. It is clever that it all plays out on a laptop.

Superb film

Reviewer: EvangelistDate: 2018-09-09

Excellent and well made. Fast paced with unusual use of multimedia to tell the story. Worth watching with teenagers, but unusual twist in the tale.... Highly recommend-and hardly a swear word!

Worth seeing

Reviewer: daveh44Date: 2018-09-06

Perhaps not so much a film as a social media experience which tells a story. Difficult to get into characters as mostly portrayed online. Good twist at end which saves it from being a dud.

big screen!

I hadnt seen the trailer so didnt know it was shot as if viewing a webcam, so initially thought maybe not for me, glad I gave it a chance .I thoroughly enjoyed this film, kept my attention all the way through and loved the twist ........great film
