Based on the children’s novel by Wendy Orr and directed by the husband and wife team of Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, Nim’s Island is an adventure comedy and story of self-discovery and friendship starring Abigail Breslin, Jodie Foster and Gerard Butler.

Nim Rusoe (Breslin) lives on a deserted island with her scientist father Jack (Butler) and her best friends: Selkie, a sea lion; Fred, a bearded dragon lizard and Galileo, a plucky pelican. But when Jack goes missing at sea and the island is “invaded,” Nim reaches out via e-mail to the adventurous author of her favourite books (Foster), and together, each discovers what it takes to truly become the hero of your own life story.
