Ecstatically received by critics, The Shape of Water is a mesmerising, Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winnng Cold War-era fantasy by Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro, featuring a stellar central performance by Sally Hawkins. Mute, isolated Elisa (Hawkins) is a cleaning lady in a high-security government laboratory; whose life is changed forever when she and colleague Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover the lab’s classified secret – a mysterious, scaly creature (Doug Jones) held captive in a water tank. As they develop a unique bond, Elisa is devastated to learn the creature’s survival hangs in the balance. Also starring Michael Shannon and Michael Stuhlbarg, it’s a film of great warmth, a moving study of otherness.
