Nim’s Island

nim'sIsland Over the weekend, we took our son to see Nim’s Island.  I cannot say enough about this movie!  We loved it!  Children with great imaginations will adore this movie!  It is a good family movie that will entertain the young to the young at heart. 

It stars Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Gerard Butler and Jodie Foster, one of my favorite actresses.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie Foster has been in that I did not like.  Her role in Nim’s Island is a comedic one, and she is truly funny! 

A brief synopsis of Nim’s Island is:   A magical place ruled by a young girl's imagination. It is an existence that mirrors that of her favorite literary character, Alex Rover – the world's greatest adventurer. However, Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city, where she suffers from agoraphobia. When Nim's father goes missing from their island, a twist of fate brings her together with Alexandra, with some hilarious chain of events.  Now they must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer Nim's Island.

We never read the book Nim’s Island by Wendy Orr, so it is on our reading list!

I won’t post a spoiler here, but I highly recommend this movie.  If you’ve seen Nim’s Island let me know what you thought of the movie.  Hope to hear from you!  Enjoy Life!!!
