Nim's Island

"Nim's Island" is the type of movie I never would have seen BC (before children). Not even Jodie Foster's name would have persuaded me. Too simple, too OTT, too _childish_....

The non-mother in me can see all that. The mother is just happy it's a movie a three year old and a five year old can enjoy, even if they have to climb into my lap during the more suspense-filled action-packed scenes (ahem).

And I couldn't help thinking that it would be awfully cool to raise my kids on Nim's island, away from all the drugs and swear words and friends who teach them to say "life is not worth living". Ok, minus the volcano, perhaps. Not that New Zealand hasn't got a volcano....
