From master story teller Guillermo del Toro comes THE SHAPE OF WATER - an other-worldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962.

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

"THE SHAPE OF WATER is made of vivid colors and deep shadows; it’s as gaudy as a musical (and briefly turns into one), bright as a cartoon and murky as a film noir... The most welcome and notable thing about THE SHAPE OF WATER is its generosity of spirit." A.O. Scott, New York Times.
