Uplifting and Heart-wrenching
In the end it's a feel-good movie. Interesting that the trailer didn't try to hide the facts about this movie - who dies, who lives, does the family all survive thing. And I kind of like that. You know you're going to see an experience and a lot of drama, and that's ok.
Naomi Watts is incredible as the mom of this inspiring family, the physical pain and trials she goes through will make you wince and cheer for her at the same time.
The kids are precious, make you smile, and wonder at how fast some children have to grow up in sometimes just a matter of days.
Ewan McGregor, as usual, delivers a good performance as the father who'll stop at nothing to reunite his family.
The other families and people encountered along the way are fascinating, I found myself thinking about these characters/people even hours after the movie ended.
Go see this film!
