In The Impossible, Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor play a real life married couple on vacation in Thailand when the devastating 2004 tsunami hit their seaside resort, scattering their family across the region. The poster for the film, which EW exclusively reveals below, makes clear the bleak contrast between the tranquil of this family’s life before the tsunami, and the chaotic devastation after it.
Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage), the film recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s set for a limited release on Dec. 21.
