The Shape of Water (15)

Tuesday 17th April 2018 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building

Elisa, mute since childhood, cleans corridors for a US cold war research lab and develops powerful feelings for a god-like, captive sea creature. She plans his escape and is transformed. In an extraordinary work that gives a voice to the voiceless, Del Toro’s magical, cinematic alchemy brings his fantastical imagination to life, and features Sally Hawkins, ‘sublime as the orphaned Elisa Esposito’. The film has won a number of recent awards.

USA 2017 – Guillermo del Toro with Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, DougJones, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer – 123 min
