Nim's Island Gerrystorm

    • Film Reviews

Cancel culture! Rip-off sequels! God! And what actually happens when you're swallowed by a whale! 

Just some of the insights my guest - 9 year old Cassian - offered up when we explored Nim's Island. 

I am pretty good at knowing the limits of my own knowledge, so it was only right that I get an expert in. Amazingly I also managed to shock him back with some Tales From The Olden Days, otherwise known as my '70s and '80s childhood. 

In this 2008 fantasy family adventure Gerard Butler plays Jack Rusoe (geddit), a widowed marine biologist living with his daughter Nim on a volcanic island in the South Pacific. Jodie Foster plays Alexandra Rover, the author of Nim's favourite adventure novels featuring the grubby-yet-brave Alex Rover, also played by Gerard Butler.  

Warning: as usual, very spoilery.
