Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor and Tom Holland star in Juan Antonio Bayona's powerful and moving fact-based drama about the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

British couple Henry and Maria are taking a Christmas break in Thailand with their three sons, Lucas, Thomas and Simon. But their holiday turns to horror on Boxing Day, when the cataclysmic tidal wave hits their resort. What follows is a harrowing representation of the catastrophe's aftermath, as seen through the eyes of the surviving members of the family.

The leads' fine performances are based on the experiences of a Spanish family who were caught in tragedy, and the film's realism is bolstered by being shot partially in Thailand and employing indigenous survivors of the actual disaster as extras; the special effects are chilling, too.
