In December 2004, close-knit family Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand. But the day after Christmas, the idyllic holiday turns into an incomprehensible nightmare when a terrifying roar rises from the depths of the sea, followed by a wall of black water that devours everything in its path.

  • The go-for-broke intensity and emotional layering Watts brings to her role is an acting triumph. And McGregor matches her in a performance of ferocity and feeling. show more

  • Yet it's not just the visuals that make the movie what it is, a thrilling, if also punishing, tale of heroic endurance. The Impossible, based on a true story, derives most of its impressive power from two remarkable performances: Naomi Watts as Maria, and Tom Holland as Lucas. show more

  • Watts is extraordinary - she manages both the physical and emotional demands of the role, with soul-deep conviction. show more

    This touched on almost every emotion. Very touching. I feel so bad and great for the family in the movie.

    Absolutely AMAZING! Ewan Mcgregor and Naomi Watts were incredible. I have not enjoyed a movie this much in years.

    This has to be one of the most power films I have ever seen. I cried most of the way through it. Hard to imagine being on a beautiful tropical island and all of a sudden without warning a wall of water coming with no where to escape. Unbeleivable!!!!
