Master storyteller Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak, Hellboy) casts an other-worldly spell with The Shape of Water, an imaginative fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works as a cleaner, mute Elisa (Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine, Maudie) is trapped in a life of lonely isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures, The Help) discover a secret classified experiment. Visually dazzling and emotionally daring, The Shape of Water merges the pathos and thrills of the classic monster movie tradition with shadowy film noir, stirring in the heat of a love story like no other to explore the fantasies we all flirt with, the mysteries we can’t control and the monstrosities we must confront. Also starring Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones and Michael Stuhlbarg.
