22 Must Watch Movies From The Toronto Film Festival | The Impossible
The Impossible

Juan Antonio Bayona’s follow-up to The Orphanage isn’t a horror film. At least, not in the supernatural sense. The Impossible, which follows a family’s struggle for survival in the wake of the Boxing Day 2004 Tsunami that killed almost a quarter of a million people, is a horror film in the most literal sense, in that it aims to convey, unflinchingly, true horror. But Bayona is driven by a sense of obligation to the survivors of the greatest natural disaster in centuries, and this is a thought-provoking, emotional story which may just emerge as an Oscar front-runner. Expect its stars, Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor and newcomer Tom Holland (son of British comedian, Dominic Holland), to give gangbuster performances, while the tsunami sequence will enthrall and appal in equal measure.

When will we see it in the UK? January 2013

1 RE:
Isn't Ryan Gosling's latest thriller 'The Place Beyond the Pines' screening? If so, why didn't it make the top 20 list? It's been attracting some seriously good reviews....My must see for 2013. More

5 Great cast + great creative team = unexpected crap
Saw a special preview of "Seven Psychopaths" in New York yesterday, and it turned out to be a huge disappointment. It starts out really well, then just degenerates into a huge, unfunny mess. It was like two different movies, neither of which was any good. Avoid, avoid, avoid. Just watch the brilliant "In Bruges" again More
