Nim (Breslin) lives with her father (Butler) on a remote island and reads adventure books about Alex Rover (also Butler). When tragedy threatens, Nim calls Rover for help. However, the author is no courageous hero, but an agoraphobic woman (Foster).
Smarter than it sounds and carried by a very funny performance by Foster, this is a kids’ movie that’s bearable for adults too.
