Opening this weekend, in limited release, is director Juan Antonio Bayona’s The Impossible. Based on a true story, the film stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor as the parents of three boys vacationing in Thailand in 2004 when the tsunami hit. Having survived, but finding themselves separated, the family members search for each other amidst the chaos, encountering strangers caught up in the same situation along the way. The film also stars Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin, and Oaklee Pendergast. For more on The Impossible, here are eight clips and the trailer.
