This was a really nice family movie. It was thoughtful, interesting, clear, funny, and not over-schmaltzy. I was surprised that Emma (age 7) was able to follow it very well, despite there being some complications involving imaginary characters.
Watching the deleted scenes was truly fascinating! Cutting out a few scenes radically changed Nim's character, and the changes were definitely for the better! I mean, really, who has Huck Finn as an imaginary friend?
