EGEDA US as a proud supporter of AFI FEST announces:
November 1 - 8
Grauman's Chinese Theater, neighboring Mann 6 Theaters, and the Egyptian Theatre
ALL REGULAR SCREENINGS ARE FREE!
Country: Spain / USA | Director: Juan Antonio Bayona | Cast: Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin, Oaklee Pendergast, Marta Etura, Sönke Möhring, Geraldine Chaplin.
Henry (Ewan McGregor) and Maria (Naomi Watts) have taken their three young sons to Thailand to spend Christmas 2004 at an idyllic beachfront resort. The family is playing outside by the pool when a tsunami hits the shore, laying waste to everything in its path. Spanish director Juan Antonia Bayona utilizes 3D sound technology – although the film is in 2D – and seamless effects to immerse the viewer in the terrifying life and death struggle to survive the rush of water and debris. However, the film is as intimate as it is epic; at times, it feels inspired by the tone Steven Spielberg strikes in films like JURASSIC PARK and WAR OF THE WORLDS. Based on a true story, THE IMPOSSIBLE gives us the terrifying spectacle and emotional drama of a family trying to find each other – dead or alive – among the thousands of strangers searching for each other in the aftermath of a disaster.
Thursday, November 8, 4:00 p.m., Chinese 1
