Nim’s Island (2008)


My Rating: 3/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “Adventurous and story book style!”

Based on the popular children’s novel of the same name by Wendy Orr, NIM’S ISLAND follows the adventures of Nim Rusoe (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’s Abigail Breslin), a spirited young girl who lives on a remote island with her scientist dad, Jack (300’s Gerard Butler), and a host of animal companions, including an iguana, a sea lion, and a sea turtle. Nim’s idyllic life gets shaken up, however, when her father goes missing while on an ocean outing. Seeking help to find Jack, Nim contacts her favorite literary hero, explorer Alex Rover (also played by Butler), who, in reality, is uptight–and distinctly unadventurous–author Alexa Rover (Jodie Foster). Against her better judgment, Alexa journeys to Nim’s faraway home, setting a series of thrilling and funny moments in motion.

Directed and written (in part) by the husband/wife team of Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, NIM’S ISLAND revels in its fanciful premise, never getting hung up on its unrealistic plot points. (E-mail on an extremely secluded island?) While Breslin and Butler are charming, the real revelation is witnessing the oft-serious Foster ham it up in a role requires plenty of slapstick, fish-out-of-water moments. Although teens might roll their eyes at NIM’S unapologetically sugary scenes, younger children will enjoy the giddy mood present of the ISLAND.
