The Impossible

The Impossible(2012)

One of the best films of the year. It's really beautiful. I found the relationship between mother and son extremely touching. Naomi Watts is really great here, but even better is young Tom Holland. I was blown away by him. He has a very bright future ahead of him. Ewan McGregor is great as well, especially in a scene where he makes a phone call home.

On a technical level the film is brilliant. How it didn't score several technical nominations from the Academy is beyond me. The sound and production design is some of the best of the year.

I'm disappointed more people aren't seeing this film. It's terrific.
