    Synopsis


    The Impossible
    Director Juan Antonio Bayona follows up his critically acclaimed feature debut The Orphanage with this drama set during the 2004 Thailand tsunami, detailing one family's incredible fight for survival. Inspired by actual events, The Impossible finds Henry (Ewan McGregor), his wife Maria (Naomi Watts), and their three sons lounging poolside at a scenic Thailand resort following an eventful Christmas. But just as the family begins to forget their troubles and settle in for a relaxing tropical getaway, one of the worst natural disasters in modern history changes their lives in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, as shock gives way to abject horror, the devoted parents fight to protect their children, encountering scenes of heart-wrenching tragedy and experiencing acts of incredible compassion as the entire country is engulfed in chaos. Tom Hollander and Geraldine Chaplin co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This was a very intense movie. I wouldn't recommend it for children under12. The story, perhaps partly because it was based on true events, was compelling. The adult and child actors were excellent. They were very believable. The special effects gave you a sense of what it was like to be caught up in the tsunami. I would highly recommend this movie.

      I really loved this movie!! I thought Naomi Watts did a great job of acting, showing the pain and suffering she went thru to survive a typhoon and keep her child alive, to hopefully be reunited with her family. Special effects were excellent. as was the story. The movie deserved the Oscar nominations it got!! Highly recommedn this movie!!

      This is movie with heart and real emotion. You'll find yourself captivated with the performances and its almost a shame nominations and not awards themselves were given to this film because everyone puts on a top notch showing. Slow?, maybe, but the film holds your attention by way of its riveting story of triumph through devastation.

      It's a True story about Love, hope and faith in the midst of a horrible Tsunami in Thailand. The acting was so believable it draws you in making you want a happy ending that seems to never come. I cannot imagine the real emotional and physical torture this family went though....this is a must see!

      Enjoyed this movie very much. Even though the story was focused on one family, it was very exciting. Received movie within a week. Too bad this movie was not available in store pick-up, so I had to spend $2.99 on shipping. Wish there's no minimum purchase to have free shipping.

      kids and I love to watch tragedy that is based on real life. There is one scene that makes it very real as to what the family was going through at the beginning. More throughout the movie, but not as shocking. It brought up conversations as a family what we should plan when on vacation.

      IT took me a while to watch this movie after purchasing it. I heard it was sad and didn't want to make myself sad. I watched it on a rainy day. It was a great day for lounging on the couch and watching a movie. It was a very good movie and I enjoyed it very much.

      This movie is so good. Such a great movie based on a true story. Love all of the performances in it. Especially Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, and Tom Holland. Even if you haven’t seen it you should buy it!
