The impossible is a film about one family on vacation and suffering from a major tsunami.
The film is based on true events. Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and the kids travel to Thailand and to spend christmas. They suffer the consequences of a major tsunami, the great tsunami that plagues the coasts of the Indian Ocean. Moreover they get lost and they think they are dead. At the end of the movie the whole family reunite and go home.
In conclusion, the film is one of the best I’ve seen, it is very well done and also very successful.
