Weekend Film Picks

Abril 15, 2008

I didn’t realize how weird the last weekend was until I thought of the films I preferred watching from Friday to Sunday. I really don’t know what I was thinking, but these are the movies that occupied my weekend, watched in THAT order.

1. Nim’s Island

Despite several curious situations in this film, I still liked it!

It’s about an 11-year-old girl named Nim (Abegail Breslin) who lives in an isolated island with her microbiologist dad Jack (Gerard Butler). As far as she could remember, after her mother died, the island has been her home. Everyday is an adventure for Nim. For friends, she has a sea lion named Selkie, an iguana named Fred and a pelican called Galileo. She has a very healthy imagination and her favorite books are those adventure stories written by her favorite author, Alex Rover (who is Alexandra Rover in real life—played by Jodie Foster). When her father goes missing from one of his research, Nim is left all alone in their island. For some twist of fate, she is able to exchange e-mails with her favorite author. Alexandra, on the other hand, realizing that Nim is just a little girl who needs her help. Alexandra, came to the rescue, yes, but with much effort and misadventures.

Note: One has to watch Nim’s Island with a child’s eyes.
