Watch: The Impossible
Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of 26 December, 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 in this life affirming true-story from Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona. Review by Nick Paris, Alice in Videoland.
