Nim Rusoe is a young girl who inhabits an isolated island with her scientist father and communicates, via e-mail, with the reclusive author of the novel she has been reading. Nim's existence mirrors that of her favorite literary character, Alex Rover, the world's greatest adventurer. But Alexandra, the author of the Rover books, leads a reclusive life in the big city. When Nim's father goes missing from the island, Nim gets Alexandra to come to her island. Now, the two must draw courage from their fictional hero, Alex Rover, and find strength in one another to conquer the island.

This movie is soooooooooo boring. I watched when I was 5 at the movie theather. Then i watched it again and it sucked. I guess I thought it was good when I was 5 because I didn't understand the movie and I was so thrilled to be in the movie theater!!!!!!

Nice kids movie.

Terrific family movie! For once, a movie that is better than the book. Jodie Foster gives a fantastic performance, as a reclusive, everything-phobic writer. Lots of thrills, adventure, and laughter for all.
