“An intense and compelling family melodrama from Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona that sets a new standard for disaster cinema.”~Salon
Aroview: A searing drama of human resilience, this up-close-and-personal disaster pic tells the true story of a vacationing family in Thailand who are torn apart by the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.
Caught in a swirl of astounding special effects, Naomi Watts' remarkably committed performance brings a striking immediacy to her ordeal of physical and mental endurance. The split-perspective structure of the film means the intensity of the first half can't be entirely sustained, but it is finally no small accomplishment and is guaranteed to give any audience a visceral and emotional ride.
