The Shape of Water (15)

Winner of 3 BAFTA Awards

A reclusive girl working in a high security American government laboratory during the Cold War Era befriends a strange, other-worldly creature who is part of a secret classified experiment.

Cold War era America, 1962. Abandoned at birth, mute orphan Elisa (Sally Hawkins) lives a relatively dull life, where every day is like groundhog-day. She wakes up, has breakfast, visits her elderly neighbour and rides the night bus to the government laboratory where she works as a cleaner alongside her friend Zelda (Octavia Spencer).

Curiosity gets the better of Elisa one night, and she ends up stumbling across a secret classified experiment in the shape of a mysterious, aquatic creature. The two form a bond, and Elisa discovers that the creature has been captured from the Amazon and is being held captive in the lab by a twisted agent named Strickland.

Intent on testing and torturing the poor creature for his own gain, Strickland is furious when he discovers Elisa is trying to thwart his plans and sets out to take his revenge.

Born from the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak), The Shape of Water is a refreshingly original fairy-tale of a film, that pays homage to Hollywood’s beloved Golden Era. Referencing classic films, including Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), this film will delight fans of vintage movies.

The film has received universal acclaim, with praise heaped upon the brilliant Sally Hawkins (Paddington 2) who leads the cast. Support comes from Michael Shannon (12 Strong), Octavia Spencer (The Help) and Richard Jenkins (Kong: Skull Island).
