Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, starring Ewan McGregor, Geraldine Chaplin, Naomi Watts and Tom Holland. Maria (casting Naomi Watts), Henry (casting Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter holiday in Thailand, all of them looking forward to a few days in a  place of paradise. 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 center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.”The Impossible” is based on a true story of an unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the destruction of one of the worst natural disasters of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest times of their lives. Both epic and touching, devastating and inspiring, “The Impossible” is a journey to the bottom of the human heart.
