Tsunami movie to screen Thursday in Phuket

PHUKET: The Spanish-financed movie The Impossible, based on the true story of a Spanish family during the 2004 Asian tsunami, is expected to screen in Phuket cinemas from tomorrow (November 29).

Wednesday 28 November 2012, 02:27PM


A spokesman from SFX Coliseum Cinema Phuket, located in Central Festival, confirmed to The Phuket News that the movie would start screening tomorrow at their cinema, but was not able to confirm times.

A spokesperson for the cinema in Jungceylon was unable to confirm whether the movie would be screening at their cinema.

The earthquake-triggered tsunami on December 26, 2004, killed around 230,000 people around the Indian Ocean, including large numbers of tourists caught in the resorts of Phuket and Khao Lak.

In the Spanish-financed movie, based on the real story of a Spanish family and filmed in the south of the country, Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts play a couple on holiday with their children in Thailand, who are separated when the tsunami hits.

After the tsunami crashes ashore and separates them, the seriously injured mother finds herself with her eldest son, while the father, played by McGregor, manages to save the two youngest children.

The movie portrays the battle for survival amid the havoc wreaked by the wave, from devastated hotels to an over-crowded hospital.

It opens with a family enjoying a luxury holiday in spectacular beach surroundings – before the wall of water hits.
