The Impossible is based on the true story of a family from Spain that survived the recent tsunami, one of the worst natural disasters of our time. Naomi Watts is the mother in this physically and emotionally challenging role – she’s already gotten a Golden Globe nomination and an Academy Award nomination and it’s well-deserved. Ewan MacGregor is the father – and he has some heart-wrenching scenes as he desperately searches for his family. The kids are all amazing young actors. The whole film is technically very well done. I was totally caught up in the drama and feeling for these people all along the way.
