exmouth cinema, thursday 31st march – the impossible
This month we journey to Thailand for our movie; The Impossible.
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. 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 the 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.
We will have some Thai specials on our menu such as Prawn Pad Thai, Old School Thai Chicken Fried Rice and Jack Fruit Thai Green Curry. Please book a table for before the movie starts at 8pm.
