Tip#618: The Power of the Human Spirit - The Impossible
The Impossible (2012)
The docudrama The Impossible is based on a true story of a British family hit by the 2004 tsunami while vacationing at a Thailand resort. They are separated by the tidal wave and struggle to find each other again. The visuals of the devastating event are stunning and emotionally charged to watch. The performances are also Oscar worthy with the mother Maria (Naomi Watts), father (Ewan McGregor) and eldest of three boys, Lucas (Tom Holland) gripping your attention and feelings every step of their journey.
Shining through all the painful adversities is the indestructible optimism of each family member. They each persevered despite overwhelming odds. And the moments of kindness and of strangers helping one another are deeply heartfelt throughout the film. The story is a powerful reminder to never give up in whatever struggles you face even if things appear impossible. And also that in your darkest times there can be a loving, helping hand nearby.
Stories of disasters can be painful to hear. They can also create stories filled with hope, love and kindness. Make sure to learn of those uplifting tales so the people who went through the devastation can inspire you in some way. Their legacy will be to fill you with the inner strength to never give up.
