Come as You Are is a small foreign film with a huge heart.

The Impossible – New Release

The Impossible is out on DVD and Blu today in the UK.

The Impossible is an incredible true story focusing on one family’s struggle for survival in the 2004 Tsunami. Strong acting and fantastic practical effects make this film a hard-hitting, sometimes difficult watch. The drama is portrayed with brutal but beautiful realism on the big screen without glorifying or belittling this tragic event. Won’t be many dry eyes left for this one.
