Missing, one of the best movies of 2023 so far, stars Storm Reid (A Wrinkle in Time) as June Allen, a teenage girl who suspects that something terrible has happened to her mother, Grace (Nia Long), after she fails to return home from a trip to Colombia with her beau Kevin (Ken Leung). Desperate to find her, June resorts to her skills as an amateur online sleuth to get to the bottom of her mother’s disappearance. The film’s events are conveyed entirely through the framing device of online screens, which capture the drama as it unfolds across a cascade of webcam footage, email inboxes, FaceTime video calls, and home security footage. Will Merrick and Nicholas Johnson’s directorial debut is a masterful mystery thriller with enough twists and turns to keep one glued to the screen as June’s investigation yields ever more dire and personal revelations right up to its heart-wrenching climax.
