A regular family - Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three kids - travel to Thailand to spend Christmas. They get an upgrade to a villa on the coastline. After settling in and exchanging gifts, they go to the pool, like so many other tourists. A perfect paradise vacation until a distant noise becomes a roar. There is no time to escape from the tsunami; Maria and her eldest are swept one way, Henry and the youngest another. Who will survive, and what will become of them?

81% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes ‘The screenplay isn’t quite as powerful as the direction or the acting, but with such an astonishing real-life story at its center, The Impossible is never less than compelling.’
Review by Peter Bradshaw – “The Guardian”:http://www.theguardian.com/film/2012/dec/27/the-impossible-review, Thursday 27 December 2012
‘Ewan McGregor produces a sledgehammer performance as a father floundering in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami in an intelligent drama by the makers of The Orphanage’
