* OohMeAccentsSlipping: GerardButler plays Alex Rover, with his natural accent, as well as Nim's father, with a FakeAmerican accent that is truly embarrassing to hear, even when the Scottish vowels and Rs aren't forcing their way out.

Foot Focus was redirected. Examples not fitting a better trope are being removed.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Nim is almost always barefoot, unless she's climbing a mountain or going on top of a roof. See FootFocus below. * FootFocus: And ''how''. Nim's idyllic tropical island and relaxed way of life lead to her going barefoot a lot. When she does wear shoes, they're an easy slip-off type with no socks. There's even a scene where she casually talks on the phone and has the phone cord threaded through her toes. In fact, pretty much anytime one of the three leading actors (Creator/AbigailBreslin, JodieFoster, or GerardButler) is barefoot, the director makes ''damn'' sure you know about it.

While you could argue that it's simply an over-active imagination, it doesn't really paint a good picture for her mental health overall.

''Nim's Island'' is a preteen adventure-fantasy novel by Wendy Orr, first published in 1999. It is centered around a girl (named Nim) and her father's adventures on and around a secret island untouched by humans. At times the story reads like a LighterAndSofter RobinsonCrusoe-esque SliceOfLife, but there are two main plot threads. One centers around Nim's father, who goes away on a research trip but is nearly killed in a storm; the other centers around Nim's unlikely but growing friendship with a writer named Alex via email. In the background are themes about family, growing up, friendship, and a GreenAesop.

About a minute of relieved, Scottish-accented ranting, then he switches back to American in the space of a glance.
