The Shape of Water


Cold War America in 1962. Lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) works as a cleaner in a secret government facility and, living with speech impairment, feels trapped in an isolated life. When she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) encounter a classified experiment - a mysterious creature beyond everyone's understanding - a connection is forged that will profoundly change their lives.

As he so skilfully did with Pan's Labyrinth, the imaginative Guillermo del Toro once again brings us a beautifully-shot, dark-edged fantasy set at a tumultuous time in human history, albeit one with a distinctly different tone.

With an excellent supporting cast that features the likes of Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins and Michael Stuhlbarg, The Shape of Water is a wondrous and enticing change from the more traditional awards season offerings.
