Movie Rental Recommendation: ‘The Impossible’ (2012)

The Impossible

A true story of a family’s experience in Thailand during the 2004 tsunami, this film spends minimal time on character development before the wave’s deadly strike. In a blink of an eye, a tranquil family vacation becomes an all-out survival situation; a fight for your life, without warning and only with what you have on…a tank top, shorts, flip flops. A few times in the film you’ll feel that you’re no longer watching a tsunami movie but instead, living it. Oscar nominated for Best Actress, Naomi Watts provides a gripping sense of what it was like for those who survived. Viewers will forever keep a watchful eye on beach waves and take note of higher ground. Raw. Intense. Emotional.

Grade: B
