The Impossible

Stars: Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin, Oaklee Pendergast, Marta Etura, Sönke Möhring | Written by Sergio G. Sánchez | Directed by J.A. Bayona

Director J.A. Bayona burst onto the scene to widespread acclaim back in 2007 with the Guillermo Del Toro backed The Orphanage, an impressive ghost story filled with the classical sense of dread Del Toro himself excels out while telling a deeply personal story. Instead of going on the horror movie merry-go-round which has taken so many promising directors over recent years, Bayona instead aimed for the stars, using a big budget and big names to tell a “true” story of the horrific Boxing Day Tsunami and one family’s struggle to find each other in its wake.

It’s not hard to get worked up by the events of The Impossible, the sheer tragedy which struck was splashed all over our TV screens for weeks »
