Aneesh Chaganty—who made his directorial debut with 2018’s ‘Searching’, the brilliant screenlife thriller (where everything is presented as being on a computer, phone, or TV screen)—has executive producer and story credit on this standalone pseudo-sequel. LA teenager June has to unravel the mystery when her mom goes missing on vacation in Colombia with a new boyfriend. Taut and engrossing from start to finish, this whodunnit will keep you guessing, even as June discovers more and more secrets about who everyone in her life really is.
