Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland
Director: J. A. Bayona
In December 2004, close-knit family Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand. But the day after Christmas, the idyllic holiday turns into an incomprehensible nightmare when a terrifying roar rises from the depths of the sea, followed by a wall of black water that devours everything in its path. Though Maria and her family face their darkest hour, unexpected displays of kindness and courage ameliorate their terror.
This movie will bring to mind how Jesus came to earth on a rescue mission. God’s perfect creation was broken, but God loved it too much to let it stay that way. Jesus came to show the loving heart of a Father who longs to save his lost kids so that He can be with them. No matter what you are going through, God came to rescue you. He is the God of hope. He is who we hold on to when everything around us is falling apart.
