The Shape Of Water

Nominated for thirteen Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

Part Creature From The Black Lagoon and part timeless love story, Guillermo Del Toro’s latest is rapturously beautiful, romantic and tipped for Oscar glory after its win at this year's Golden Globes.

Set during the Cold War, the always captivating Sally Hawkins gives a spellbinding central performance as a mute cleaner working in a secret facility forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature (Pan's Labyrinth's Doug Jones) which is being held prisoner by a cruel government agent played by a suitably sinister Michael Shannon. 

The Shape Of Water is Del Toro's most personal film since his Spanish language films and features an impeccable cast including Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins and Michael Stuhlbarg. An absolute must-see.
