Tragic story- but important depiction of what a family experienced. Naomi's performance is amazing. Direction/screenplay & the reenactment of the tsunami is terrifying to watch, but the best of all that has been produced.
Ewan McGregor never fails to bring his best and the kids in this movie are completely amazing little actors. This movie is exhausting to watch, but should not be missed. This is one film that you should see in the theatre! Don't wait for it to be release to DVD/Cable.
The special effects are amazing. I can't imagine how difficult it was to film.
I hope that Naomi and the young cast receive special recognition for their hard work to shoot this film.

Great acting by both MacGregor, Watts and the children. The one thing that I could have done without? Seeing just about the entire movie in the trailer. I knew the storyline from beginning to end from watching the trailer. Don't do that!

This was a great movie. My husband and I both enjoyed it and would see it again. The action was so real and the actors did a wonderful job. This was a true story and it seemed as if it was just happening as everything was so real.

If Naomi Watts is overlooked for the Oscar for that child Jennifer Lawrence, I will be pissed. She deserves an Oscar more than any woman in recent memory for this role. WHat that must have taken out of her as a mother....stunning performance. AMazing experience that will always haunt me

This is a frightening film. It's attention to the detail of the devastation and re-creation of the terror of the tsunami are disturbing. It reminded me that our lives hang by a thread at all times, whether we are on a beach in Thailand or a cinema in Colorado or hovel in Haiti. We take our lives and the presence of our loved ones for granted.
