What We Found 2020
1h 50min | Thriller | 31 July 2020 (USA)
A trio of friends are starting high school when their friend vanishes. With the police unable, or unwilling to find her, they take it upon themselves to find out what happened her, undertaking a harrowing journey that will change them all.
There’s good work from the supporting adult cast as well. Elizabeth Mitchell makes a lot out of her limited screen time as the police captain investigating Cassie’s disappearance, whilst the ever-reliable James Ransone disappears into the character of a corrupt cop, giving him more depth than is common in this role. Importantly, the adult actors know when to hold back as well, making room for the younger ones to do their thing. It’s the kids we’re invited to identify with and the intensity of their friendship provides warmth in what might otherwise be a grim story.
Though it never quite achieves the magic it’s aiming for, this is a solid little thriller with a lot to recommend it. It’s perfectly targeted at an age group too often ignored in cinema, but adults will find plenty to enjoy as well.
