The Shape of Water

L.A. Times: “The Shape of Water is a wonder to behold. Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.”

I found this to be a little different from your usual Hollywood love story. Yes, they meet and are not attracted, but later fall in love and must overcome many obstacles. But the obstacles are unique: Cold war experiments (on one of the lovers,) Army officers who don’t believe in love, and, oh yes, there’s the interspecies thing.

Set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins, Oscar nominated) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer, nominated) discover a secret classified experiment.
