I recently happened to see Nim's Island, which I found to be rather interesting, and slightly funny, if rather unlikely. However, my favorite part was about 5 minutes in, when the father receives supplies. Among the stacks of book sis a bunch of magazines. The magazine on top...is the August 25, 2007 copy of New Scientist.
Way to try to date the film by giving everyone 5-to-10-year-old Macs, and then give the father the latest copy of NS. Couldn't the OCD author just have used Google Earth to find the island?

Could that be Nim's Island?
