Other then the scenes when the wave hit and immediately after this movie for me was slow, slow and SLOW. Too much time spent playing the same scenes over and over again. Acting was O.K. but I don't think anyone deserves to be up for an award winning performance. I know this was based on a true story but I couldn't figure out at the end, if he thought he was going to lose his job and she wash't working, how they were flown out on a large jet and were the only passengers on it?
