Synopsis: 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.

Eggs, water, and-yes-sex all play crucial and overlapping roles in director Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, an adult fairy tale that is at once deeply familiar and utterly original. -The Atlantic

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. -Los Angeles Times
