What an amazing film, I just got back from it
a 20 year old male student crying their eyes out the whole way through
excellent production and acting
a couple of annoyances with the ending of the story but it was so well executed it doesnt matter
I really reccomend it

The scenes for the first half hour or so were just breathtaking. I wasn't as fussed on the dad and the other kids has to be said, I just wanted to watch more about the mother and eldest son.

A wonderful film . If anybody should be nominated for awards it's Tom Holland as he was absoluty outstanding and it was his first film which makes it all that much more amazing .

What were your couple of annoyances?

Just got back from seeing this film and I think I cried the whole way though basically. Brilliantly acted especially by Tom Holland.

Can't believe their story, amazing.

A very good film, had me holding back the tears a couple of times.

The worst bit was when we finally saw what the mother had been through when the wave hit. Rag doll comes to mind.

I wasn't holding back, same with most of the packed Cinema I saw it in....and not just a couple of times.

It was a very good film although it did leave me a bit drained. Tom Holland was very good as was Naomi Watts. The effects were incredible considering it's a midbudget film.

Slightly spoilerish but Did anyone notice

I know the bit you're talking about but I don't recall him being naked. Are you sure?

Me too...and I'm sure he was.
Just something that happened; ripped off by the Tsunami.

Can't believe I didn't notice he was naked - I thought he had trunks/shorts on

I went to see this film at the local Vue this afternoon. Powerful and very, very moving. 10/10.

I think this was to show that normal convention was torn apart (like clothes) after the tsunami. THe victims were going to see weird & unsettling things in the aftermath.

I wouldnt be surprised if that really happened either. I could perfectly see something like that happening after a major disaster. To me it seemed quite natural, although the boy seemed a bit taken aback by it...

I imagine with the amount of water plus sharp objects, I suppose something like swimming trunks would likely just get caught and rip off.

saw it last night, missus was a blubbering wreck, i didnt get that sad for some reason even though it was such a horrible tragedy, just the film i guess.

The scenes for the first half hour or so were just breathtaking. I wasn't as fussed on the dad and the other kids has to be said, I just wanted to watch more about the mother and eldest son.
i kinda lost a bit of interest when ewans story started and then i drifted abck into it near the end

apparently the tsunami sequence took a year of planning.

Didn't know anything about how it all turned out and only found out after the film, the Family were Spanish.

Brilliant film, the tsunami scenes were amazing. You could almost feel what it was like to have been there. I felt the mothers pain with her injury. Well acted and well written. I cried twice!!

Saw this last night at the flicks. Didn't think this movie was my cup of tea but I was very impressed.

As others have said the eldest kids acting was spot on! 9/10

Fantastic film. Took my 12 year old Godson to see it and was a wee bit worried that he'd find it a bit long. Not at all - he loved it as well!!

Saw this film today and thought it was brilliant! Didn't cry as much as I thought I would though...but did phone my mum afterwards to tell her I loved her

I did however think some of the 'injury' scenes were too graphic for a 12A rating
