The Water Horse
A delightful fantasy film which I enjoyed in a private screening this afternoon. (I was the only one in the theater.)
It is about a boy who lives in Scotland who finds an egg which hatches into a water horse that eventually grows into what is known today as the Loch Ness Monster.
It was very fun in parts and poignent in others. It has a message about how we can understand and value another living being. I recommend it. (Note there are some scary parts so it is probably not for the very young but the kids I taught would probably enjoy it.
I also saw a trailer for a new Jodi Foster movie that is coming in April that looks to be a good film (What Jodi Foster movie isn't) It is called Nim's Island.
