I'm so glad I saw this movie. It's great drama about the biggest natural disaster of our lifetimes, and the way one family handles being caught up in the whole horrible catastrophe. Powerful human emotions are very effectively displayed by Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, as well as their three children, all of whom are very good actors. You feel how valuable life is when you see this film, and how powerful simple human kindness can be. These are values not often seen on the screen, especially these days of computer animation. I highly recommend this film.
