Last night, I was in Queensbay Mall to catch a movie entitled Nim’s Island, an adventure trailer.
Nim’s Island tells the story of a young girl named Nim (Abigail Breslin). She lives on a deserted island with her scientist father (Gerard Butler). She spends her days having wild adventures in the woods along with her animal friends and her wild imagination. Nim has a huge passion for books, especially the Alex Rover books. One night when her father gets lost at sea, Nim sends a letter to her literary hero pleading for help. Little does Nim know, that Alex Rover is a woman (Jodie Foster). Alexandra is agoraphobic and never leaves the house. She rarely even opens her front door. Alex also has a wild immagination, whereas her fictional character Alex Rover (also Gerard Butler) talks to her, mocks her, and gives her pep talks. When they find Nim’s Letter, fictional Alex badgers alexandra until he finally convinces her to leave the confines of her townhouse to go and help Nim. After a long and terrifying journey, both of the Alex’s make it to Nim’s Island and try to help.
