The Shape of Water

In the hidden high-security Cold War-era government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. A creation of master storyteller Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), The Shape of Water is nominated for thirteen Academy Awards, including Best Picture. With Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Doug Jones.
“The Shape of Water is director Guillermo del Toro’s finest film, a lovely, empathetic tribute to Old Hollywood, monster movies, outsiders and love that could only come from the mind of the visionary filmmaker.” (Adam Graham, Detroit News)
