FRI­DAY THE IM­POS­SI­BLE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, SBS In The Im­pos­si­ble, you know what’s com­ing – the cat­a­clysmic tsunami that ex­ploded from be­neath the In­dian Ocean on Box­ing Day 2004 – but you still won’t know what hit you when it ar­rives. Ewan McGre­gor and Naomi Watts play Henry and Maria, a Bri­tish cou­ple whose young fam­ily is torn apart when a tidal wave strikes the lux­ury Thai re­sort where they are hol­i­day­ing. To its credit, this fully fledged dis­as­ter movie never once dares pitch it­self as es­capist en­ter­tain­ment. That would only serve to den­i­grate the many real-life tragedies as­so­ci­ated with the event. No, The Im­pos­si­ble is an ex­pe­ri­ence from which there can be no escape.
