THE SHAPE OF WATER bursts with humanity at its best in a story awash in the inhuman treatment of ... More

THE SHAPE OF WATER bursts with humanity at its best in a story awash in the inhuman treatment of those who are different. Guillermo del Toro marshals memories of American film - from silent classics to 1930s musicals to 1950s horror films - to create a visually stunning, phantasmagorical romance that is both astonishingly new and echoes as a tale as old as time. Sally Hawkins delivers a tour de force performance without uttering a word, reminding that cinema at its finest can express the purest form of love.
