Director Guillermo del Toro creates a fantastical, character-driven period film that lives and breathes its own wondrous monster lore. Set in 1960s America, it centres around a mysterious water-dwelling creature that is captured in South America and brought back to Baltimore for scientific study.
The Shape of Water has an ensnaring charm that speaks with great humanity and thrilling suspense and delivers scenes that will move audiences to tears. A bond is quickly formed between the humble, mute Elisa and the creature which develops into an intimate connection.
