The Impossible featuring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor–and a Tsunami

According to a Lionsgate email newsletter actor Ewan McGregor will present first responder International Medical Corps’  Courage Award to director Juan Antonio Bayona on December 4, 2012 for his film work on The Impossible which presents the true story of a family caught by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

The Impossible will be released on December 21, 2012–just in time to wrench your heartstrings for the commercial Christmas season.  With performances by McGregor and Watts this film ought to more than hold its own against any shallow glitz films proffered for the winter theaterlands.  It’s now at the top of my to see list.

      LOL! I’m hoping it is a GOOD movie, Meg. Yes, the reviews/trailers can be misleading for sure. But I’m not aware of much else about this disaster being put out for American audiences in this media. That might be just my shortcoming. But I am willing to give this film a chance.
