The true story of the devastating 2004 tsunami that consumed the coast of Phuket, Thailand -- and how one family survived it -- is reenacted by Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor in The Impossible, and we have an exclusive clip from the Blu-ray/DVD bonus features!
"Naomi Watts, she's brave – she's not afraid of talking any kind of risk to get to points where you as a director never thought you were going to be," says the film's helmer Juan Antonio Bayona.
On DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, The Impossible finds Naomi as Maria and Ewan as her husband Henry, who are enjoying their winter vacation in Thailand with their three sons. On the day after Christmas, their relaxing holiday in paradise becomes an exercise in terror and survival when their beachside hotel is pummeled by an extraordinary, unexpected tsunami.
The Impossible tracks just what happens when this close family and tens of thousands of strangers must come together to grapple with the mayhem and aftermath of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time.
