Winner of 4 Oscars! - including Best Picture and Best Director.

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water - an emotionally absorbing story brought to life by a stellar Sally Hawkins performance.

Elisa is a mute, isolated woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes forever when she discovers the lab's classified secret -- a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

"magical, old fashioned cinema, which proves to be vibrant, delightful escapism rich with emotion and significance." - FILMINK AUSTRALIA

"A ravishing, eccentric auteur's imagining, spilling artistry, empathy and sensuality from every open pore" - VARIETY

"A dark-edged fairy tale as lovingly steeped in vintage movie magic as it is in hypnotic water imagery" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
