One of the two Sony movies to come to Netflix US this weekend via the Sony first window deal is Missing from ScreenGems.
Helmed by Storm Reid, the thriller sees a young girl track down her mother through technology after she goes missing but also stumbles into her secrets.
Rated Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, the critic’s consensus was that the movie “can strain credulity in its efforts to keep the audience guessing, but a fast pace and relatable fears keep this twisty techno-thriller from completely losing its way. ”
This movie is unavailable on Netflix’s advertising tier.

The second big Sony movie hitting Netflix this weekend is Sony Pictures Classics (whose output hasn’t always dropped onto Netflix, strangely). The movie features an all-star cast about a father who faces new obstacles when his troubled teenage son moves in with them.
Like Missing, this movie is also unavailable on Netflix’s advertising tier.
