With The Impossible expanding to more theaters this Friday, we spotlight J.A. Bayona's jaw-dropping tsunami sequence … and the maternal love that carries her family through the danger.
Based on a true story, The Impossible is Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona's follow-up to his hit horror movie The Orphanage. The film stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and centers around one family's survival of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. I got the chance to sit down with Bayona and talk about the creation of The Impossible, from shooting a deadly tsunami wave to Naomi Watts' potential Oscar nomination.
Awards favorites Zero Dark Thirty and Amour arrive in theaters over the holiday weekend. Will you be checking out either movie (or any of the other titles getting a limited release) this weekend?
