Nim’s Island

So when her father (Gerard Butler) suddenly goes missing, the young girl turns to a place she is sure she'll find help -- the author of her favorite novels. But what she doesn't know is that her favorite writer is actually a citified woman (Jodie Foster) afraid to leave her apartment. Get the movie review and more. »
