From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro (PAN’S LABYRINTH) comes an otherworldly fairy tale, 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 silence and isolation. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. THE SHAPE OF WATER finds Guillermo del Toro at his visually distinctive best—and matched by an emotionally absorbing story brought to life by a stellar Sally Hawkins performance. Also featuring Michael Shannon and Richard Jenkins in characteristically remarkable supporting turns.

“Strange marvels abound in THE SHAPE OF WATER. Marshalling these remarkable performances together with stunning production design, fluid camerawork, and Alexandre Desplat's gorgeous score, del Toro delivers unforgettable film poetry.” —Cameron Bailey, Toronto International Film Festival

“Taylor and del Toro have penned a wonderful screenplay, making a rousing focus of a group of plucky outsiders and noting the exclusivity of the American Dream...Shannon, Jenkins, Spencer and Stuhlbarg are precision-cast but it's Hawkins that will steal your heart.” —Emma Simonds, The List
