Based on the true story of one family's survival of the 2004 tsunami, The Impossible stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and is directed by J.A. Bayona [The Orphanage].
Maria [Naomi Watts], Henry [Ewan McGregor] and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise.

As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.
The Impossible is the powerful and unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, The Impossible is a journey to the core of the human heart...

David and Paige Walling [Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener] and Terry and Cathy Ostroff [Oliver Platt, Allison Janney] are best friends and neighbours living on Orange Drive in suburban New Jersey.
Their comfortable existence goes awry when prodigal daughter Nina Ostroff [Leighton Meester], newly broken up with her fiancé Ethan [Sam Rosen], returns home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Rather than developing an interest in the successful son of her neighbors, Toby Walling [Adam Brody], which would please both families, it's her parents' best friend David who captures Nina's attention.
When the connection between Nina and David becomes undeniable, everyone's lives are thrown into upheaval, particularly Vanessa Walling's [Alia Shawkat], Nina's childhood best friend. It's not long before the ramifications of the affair begin to work on all of the family members in unexpected and hilarious ways, leading everyone to reawaken to their lives, reassess what it means to be happy, and realise that sometimes what looks like a disaster turns out to be the thing we need.
