Cinemascope: The Missing (Season 1)

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2014.

Plot line: When Tony and Emily Hughes travel to France with their 5-year-old son Oliver, their family holiday turns into a nightmare when Oliver disappears into the crowd of a busy French street.

This eight episode BBC/Starz mini-series follows the aftermath of a child's abduction. The story unfolds wonderfully, and things we know in present day are slowly revealed with flashbacks. I especially loved how the show weaves in the backstory of various characters seamlessly into the narrative. 

You can see the Season 1 trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is TV worth watching.
