The Impossible (2012) Poster

Starring Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor and Tom Holland and based on María Belón’s true story of a tourist family in Thailand caught in the destruction and chaotic aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. On the morning of December 26th Maria, Henry, and their three sons relax around the resort pool, after a day of Yuletide festivities. They are jolted from their torpor by a terrifying roar rising up seemingly from the center of the Earth itself. A huge wall of black water surges toward the coast and when the tsunami hits the resort, Maria and son Lucas are swept away from the rest of the family. As the family struggles to reunite amongst tens of thousands of similarly afflicted strangers, their terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage, and simple kindness they experience during the darkest hours of their lives.

Allow plenty of extra time to find parking in busy Saratoga so you can arrive well ahead of time for this small, popular venue. Meet near the ticket table in the lobby between 2:20 - 2:30pm. Look for the CDFF sign and identify yourself to your host.

Saratoga Film Forum is housed inside the Saratoga Arts Center building located at 320 Broadway and the corner of Spring Street. The main doors to the art gallery may be locked but the entrance for SFF, around the right side of the building, will be open. The hallway leads straight to the lobby area, ticket table and screenings inside the Dee Sarno Theater.

For those interested after the film, we can grab a bite to eat at one of Saratoga's many delicious eateries.

    I Googled the story last night and guess what- you were right, the eldest son is now studying medicine! Also, it said that they did keep in touch with the other father who was also looking for his family. The movie was very well done!

    Welcome to new members Milt and Joe M! Great seeing this film with everyone and we had a lot to talk about over dinner. Another question for those who saw the film: Do you think baby Daniel also saw and recognized Lucas at the hospital camp?
