Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter holiday in Thailand but on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the centre of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.
Based on a remarkable 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. Also starring Ewan McGregor & Tom Holland, directed by Juan Antonio Bayona.
