Throwback Thursday-The Impossible (2012)

The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami is one of the worst natural disasters in modern history. It is estimated that a quarter of a million lives were lost and 14 countries were devastated by the both the earthquake and tsunami.

In the 2012 film, The Impossible, Maria (Naomi Watts) and Henry (Ewan McGregor) are a married couple on vacation in Thailand with their children. Then the tsunami hits and the family is torn apart in a futile attempt to outrun the sea. Will the family survive and if they do, will they be intact or mourning the loves ones who did not survive?

While the narrative could have been punched up a bit, knowing that this is based on a true story only adds to the tension and heightens the drama.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
