Anything can happen on Nim's Island, 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. But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim'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 Nim's Island. Written by

Alexandra Rover (Jodie Foster) is flying from San Francisco to Raratonga (Cook Islands) via Borneo (Kalimantan in Indonesia). It is very unlikely to happen because between San Francisco and Borneo the airplane will have well passed the Cook Islands. The nearest international airport that may take her to Cook Islands is Nadi in Fiji (South Pacific) and from there can fly to Cook Islands via Air Pacific. Borneo is in the South Asia region. So it is crazy enough to transit in Asia while the destination is in the South Pacific island. See more »

It was a cute movie. But, there were some parts that were 'too cute' to enjoy. Some of the animals used...though they were real, looked fake, cheesy, and unrealistic..like the bird.The seal was probably the most realistic acting animal and did a nice job. The lizards used in the film looked real but the the 'voices' they were given were way too cheesy and was the one thing that made them seem fake...although they got a giggle from the kids in the audience. Foster did a great job of portraying a character with agoraphobia, she hit it right on. The rest of the actors did quite well also, Breslin has proved herself to be a known name in the future. I definitely recommend this for the kids.
