Little Shop Movie Review: The Impossible-True Story Brings True Fear & Emotion


I was sent this film almost a month ahead of time before the Oscars.  The film opens with the family flying to their vacation place. The story is the true story of a family and this is an incredible story and makes a heart wrenching film.
When the tsunami hits there is utter fear in my heart it is incredibly real and the actors are really  swept into the waters.
The scenes are harrowing and extremely well played out by the entire cast. The family is broken into two groups Naomi Watts(Maria) and the eldest son(Lucas) are together and  they help a young boy that is stranded by the waters. Ewan Mcgregor(Henry) and the two youngest boys(Thomas & Simon) are together, they are miles apart as a family but have hope to reunite with each other.

Here Naomi Watts & Ewan McGregor are with the real surviving family of the Tsunami at the Hollywood premiere of the film.




                                                                                        The Incredible scenes that were filmed for this movie and the realism that captures your heart and thoughts with all those that lost their lives that day is really hard to put to words.

There are unsung heroes in this tale of massive destruction and death. The young Lucas is given a challenge of reuniting families when the fate of the rest of his family is uncertain.

Below is a Behind The Scenes looks at the making of the film.
This is one of those films that stay with you long, long after you watch it, knowing that this happened but also the makers, actors etc that did this should be commended as to keeping it real and not making it trivial and overdone.
As a father of two young boys I felt the heartache that this family was going through as if I was there with them, I was enthralled and caught up in the moment of the desire to be reunited with each other and yet when the time came Lucas made the call out for people that had family that also might have loved ones that survived as well.

Thank you for reading this
