Anything can happen on Nim's Island, a magical place ruled by a young girlÂ’s imagination. It is an existence that mirrors that of her favorite literary character, Alex Rover--the worldÂ’s greatest adventurer. But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When NimÂ’s father goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra. Now, they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer NimÂ’s Island.
If “Nim’s Island” were anything but a children’s movie, the casting genius who suggested Jodie Foster as a potential love interest for Gerard Butler would be looking for a new occupation.
