The Impossible (2013)

Based on the real life experiences of the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami disaster.

The gimmick: The Impossible is a disaster movie that refuses to step into "triumph of the human spirit" territory. Disaster comes unexpectedly and is an equal opportunity taker.

Watch for: a film that spits in the face of genre conventions and comes out the better for it.
