Overview

Winner of 2 Golden Globes: Best Director (Guillermo Del Toro), Best Original Score (Alexandre Desplat)!

In this wide open Oscar year, it’s looking like THE SHAPE OF WATER is the odds on favorite for Best Picture, Best Actress and many more—and well it should be! —having already won more awards than any other film in voting by other groups. Guillermo Del Toro’s (PAN’S LABYRINTH) truly fantastic film has already won Best Actress (Sally Hawkins) from the Boston Film Critics and Best Director from the Golden Globes, L.A. Film Critics and Best Film from the Broadcast Film Critics, AFI Awards and Venice Film Festival, among literally hundreds of others.  During the Cold War conflict of the 60s, a mute but hearing Eliza (Sally Hawkins) works as a cleaner at a secret government facility, where she becomes drawn to the new specimen: a mysterious marine creature (Doug Jones). While Eliza begins to fall in love with it, the facility head Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon), only desires to take the creature apart for experimental advantage against the Russians. “The Shape of Water is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful. “—A.O. Scott, N.Y.Times. “ “Without a single weak link in the exceptional cast…it’s a film that makes you feel a lot. But overridingly you feel lucky — lucky to be watching it, lucky that something so sincerely sweet, sorrowfully scary and surpassingly strange can exist in this un-wonderful world, and desirous of hanging on to as much of its magic for as long as you can after you reemerge back onto dry land. “—Jessica Klamg, The Playlist.  R. 123 Min.
