Shape of Water, The
Guillermo del Toro weaves an extraordinary fairy tale of love, desire and monsters in the overwhelmingly gorgeous creature feature THE SHAPE OF WATER.
Sally Hawkins stars as Elisa, a mute woman who works as a cleaner in a secret high-security government laboratory in the midst of 1960s Cold War paranoia. But within the facility is something that will cause Elisa’s lonely life to start singing – an aquatic, humanoid creature (Doug Jones) who has been dragged up from the watery depths and lives now lives in a tank shut off from the world. Witnessing the horror that the ghastly federal agent Strickland (Michael Shannon) wants to subject the creature to in order to find a way to turn him into a weapon, Elisa comes up with a plan to save her pescatorial beloved.
With fantastic supporting turns from Octavia Spencer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Richard Jenkins, THE SHAPE OF WATER deftly whirls through classic film genres as diverse as spy thrillers, monster movies, musicals and film noir, before soaring to the heights of a truly great screen love story. It’s a film that chooses kindness over cruelty, the impossible over the ordinary, and the love that a human woman can feel for a 7-feet tall supernatural fishman!
