Nim's island / A ilha de Nim

Dh won 4 tickets and we watched this film today. We loved it. Good actors, a wonderful scenery, a lot of adventure and some humor. And no violence. I've heard people say that it is not a great film but we had a great time.
O meu marido ganhou quatro bilhetes e fomos ver este filme hoje. Gostámos muito. Bons actores, uma paisagem maravilhosa, muita aventura e algum humor. E nada de violência. Já ouvi dizer que não é um grande filme mas nós divertimo-nos bastante.


«Nim's Island tells the story of a young girl named Nim (Abigail Breslin). She lives on a beautiful uncharted island with her father Jack Rusoe (Gerard Butler), a research scientist studying microscopic marine organisms. She spends her days having wild adventures in the woods along with her animal friends, Fred the lizard, Galileo the pelican, and Selki the seal, and her wild imagination. Nim has a huge passion for books, especially the Alex Rover books. Jack is about to take Nim on a two day research trip looking for protozoa, but Nim begs to be left behind so she can help the hatching baby sea turtles. Jack reluctantly leaves Nim behind and sails out to sea. While he is away, Alexandra Rover (Jodie Foster) the author of the Rover books emails Jack to get his knowledge about volcanoes for her next book. Nim replies thinking he is the great adventurer Alex Rover. Everything goes well until a huge storm hits the island and Jack becomes 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. Will they find Nim's father? Find out by going to see Nim's Island.» - Written by Joy Pearson
«Uma jovem menina habita uma ilha isolada com o seu pai cientista e comunica com um autor solitário sobre o romance que lê. É uma existência que espelha a sua personagem literária favorita, Alex Rover, o maior aventureiro do mundo. Mas Alexandra, a autora dos livros Rover, tem uma vida solitária na grande cidade. Quando o pai de Nim desaparece da sua ilha, um golpe de destino junta-a com Alexandra. Agora devem encontrar a força e coragem do seu imaginário herói, para conquistar a Ilha de Nim.» - por Diogo de Vasconcellos e Sá
