I wasn’t expecting to see such an incredibly good film, but I should have known better since, after all, it stars the woman I consider to be the most courageous actress in filmdom today…Naomi Watts. Here, again, she gives a performance that is worthy of an Oscar nomination.
Kudos, also, go to Ewan McGregor, who plays her husband, and Tom Holland, who plays her eldest son.
But, equally responsible for this amazing work written by Sergio Sanchez is the Spanish crew led by Director Bayona and perfected by Elena Ruiz and Bernat Vilaplana’s outstanding editing that put the audience into the picture and swept it along without let up until the very end.
I give The Impossible a 5 out of 5.
