If you were a fan of Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy film Pan’s Labyrinth, his latest, The Shape of Water, is of the same adult fairytale vein.

The movie is set in America against the backdrop of the Cold War era. The film's talented list cast includes Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

The synopsis for The Shape of Water reads: “In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.”
