The Impossible - 'True Story' Featurette

Reported by Outsiders - 2012.11.20

Imagine surviving one of the most devastating tsunamis ever recorded in history, only now you're faced with the hellish aftermath of finding your displaced family in a foreign country. It may sound unbelievable, but the story that's depicted in Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor's tearjerker "The Impossible" really did happen. And according to this fascinating featurette (watch above), it happened to a courageous Spanish woman named Maria Belon. She makes an appearance in this clip, sharing her feelings about surviving 2004's Indian Ocean tsunami. And oh boy, it's a whopper of a nightmare. Plus, cast and crew reveal how they first heard about Maria's jaw-dropping story. It's pretty interesting too. You can see it come to life, when the movie hits theaters on December 21st.

Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her. Based on a true story, THE IMPOSSIBLE is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, THE IMPOSSIBLE is a journey to the core of the human heart.

The Impossible stars Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland

Release: December 21st, 2012
