We went to see this today and loved it! I especially loved the fact that when nim is narrating at the beginning of the movie she says "I don't go to school. You see I'm homeschooled - well island schooled." She talks about how she learned to swim from the seal and the things she learned from the pelican and living life. Then she says everything else she needed to learn she got from the books she reads. It was fantasy, but what a positive take on homeschooling!
