Nominated for 7 Golden Globes, and already the winner of over 45 international awards, del Toro’s masterpiece stars Sally Hawkins as Elisa, a mute woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes forever when she and fellow co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover the lab’s classified secret – a mysterious, scaled aquatic creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

Featuring outstanding performances by co-stars Doug Jones, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg, and set against a mesmerizing score by Alexandre Desplat and equally gorgeous cinematography by Dan Laustsen, The Shape of Water has emerged as one of the most celebrated films of 2017, earning more nominations than any other film at next year’s Golden Globe awards, and taking home the prestigious Golden Lion (Best Picture) at this year’s Venice Film Festival.

“Grade: A. 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

“A ravishing, eccentric auteur’s imagining, spilling artistry, empathy and sensuality from every open pore, it also offers more straight-up movie for your money than just about any Hollywood studio offering this year.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“The Shape of Water is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie – and altogether wonderful.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
