The Impossible” the other day. That’s the one with Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts about the tsunami that hit Thailand back in 2004.atched the movie “
So, this was a really good movie about a family who survived the tsunami that we all heard about and were able to finally find each other, all 5 of them, by the movie’s end. This was a true story and a very heart-wrenching movie.
At one point after the devastation from the tsunami, the mother played by Naomi Watts, was in the hospital awaiting her next surgery and the outlook for her was not that great. She had spent the time after the tsunami with her oldest son, 12-year-old “Lucas”. Lucas was visiting with her in the hospital and was going to leave to go look for his dad and two little brothers.
As he leaves his mom in the hospital, he pulls the curtain around her bed making it impossible for her husband to see her while he was out looking for her by checking with police and scouring hospitals. This brings me to the true meaning of the movie title, “The Impossible”.
The impossible thing about this tale was that a 12 year boy would pull a room separating drape CLOSED without being asked to do so. I mean, I know 17, 21, and 22 year olds that don’t CLOSE DOORS!
