The Impossible

Directed by: Juan Antonio Bayona

Starring: Tom Holland, Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor

Rating: Not Yet Rated

Release Date: December 21, 2012

Trailer Score: 8/10

Thoughts by Tsr: After The Orphanage I would gladly watch anything Juan Antonio Bayona does, but I was a bit leery of this one. I just didn’t understand why we needed to focus on a rich white family on vacation instead of any of the people who actually lived there. While that feeling still lingers, this trailer does make The Impossible look like a powerful story of hope, love, and survival.

Once I accepted the fact that this is the story the film chose to tell I found it very effective. The main trio – particularly Ewan McGregor – looks terrific. There is some really excellent craft work too. The picture is gorgeous from beginning to end, with the shot of people releasing floating lanterns being especially beautiful. »
