Alex Etel plays a boy in 1940s Scotland who discovers an egg near a loch and befriends the mythical creature — known as a ”water horse” — that hatches from it. Oh, and the horse grows up to be the Loch Ness monster. ”Most people are fascinated by the legend,” director JayRussell says, ”especially when they want to believe it’s real.” But what’s that going to take? According to Etel, just one thing: ” A good imagination.”
