Per Wikipedia, “The film tells the true story of Maria and Henry Belon, played by Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, and their three children. It starts as the family begins their Christmas vacation inThailand, with the intention of spending a few days at a tropical paradise resort. Their idyllic vacation is interrupted on the morning of December 26, 2004, when a devastating tsunami destroys the coastal zone. In surviving the disaster, the family is separated and a desperate search to reunite ensues.” Watching this well acted movie, really makes you feel what it would be like to be in, and survive, a tsunami. It was an emotionally draining experience watching the adversity that the family endured. Through most of the movie, we do not know that the impossible had happened. What was impossible was that against all odds, all five of the family members survived.
