A powerful story based on one family's survival of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, The Impossible stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and is directed by J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage).
Based on a true story, The Impossible is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria (Naomi Watts) and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, The Impossible is a journey to the core of the human heart.
There's little point pretending that The Impossible is an easy film to watch. It simply isn't. As haunting a piece of cinema as you're likely to see with a 12 certificate attached, it's the story of a family who take a holiday to Thailand. Headed up by Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, said family's life is turned upside down by the horrific tsunami that devastated the region back in 2004.
Punches simply aren't pulled here. Based on true events, The Impossible has changed some of the details, but not lessened any of the impact. The tsunami itself is stunningly realised on screen, but it's the drama afterwards, and the tragedy, that sticks heavily in the mind. It's not a relentlessly downbeat film, with some extraordinary things to relate about the human spirit, but it is one that's inevitably very emotional.
Director Juan Antonio Bayona, previously responsible for The Orphanage, is studious in his handling of the material, making the story an accessible and yet not glamorous one. And his diligent work, mixed with some superb performances, make The Impossible an important, absorbing and enduring piece of cinema. It's not the kind of film for a Friday night in front of the telly, but it is one that demands to be seen. --Jon Foster

Emotionally the film is often a tough watch, but the really difficult-to-watch scenes are the superbly-done Tsunami effects. To see someone thrown around underwater like a rag doll as they crash into debris is actually quite shocking, more so as you know it is probably exactly what happened.
Naomi Watts and Ewen Mcgregor are exceptional, as are the children. The film probably could be 15 minutes shorter, hence 4 stars, but it's a powerful and very watchable film.
Do not miss it.
It's a story that needed telling of the Indian Ocean tsunami and focuses on one particular family.
Thousands and thousands of people died and countless others were injured during this event and it shows the absolute horror of being caught up in a tsunami.
We see pictures on the news but it's hard to relate to what's going on and I think the story should be told for all those people who died.
It was done sensitively, had you going through all kinds of emotions but showed the horror of it sincerely and unashamedly.
A message of hope for humanity underneath it all in that most people will band together and do whatever they can to help one another in a disaster.
However, there's always going to be one selfish a** that won't let you borrow his phone when the world is ending. You know, long-distance and all.
