Jodie Foster talks about finding her comic side in ‘Nim’s Island’


Fear has long been a common theme in the films of Jodie Foster: the misguided agitation underlying Taxi Driver; the barbaric inhumanity of The Silence of the Lambs; the claustrophobia of Panic Room.

In her latest release, Nim's Island, Foster's character is again defined by fear, only this time it's a comic, neuroses-laden anxiety. She plays an agoraphobic author who rarely leaves her house and is terrified of germs.

In Australia last week for the film's premiere, two-time Oscar winner Foster says the parallel didn't occur to her immediately.
