I love Guillermo del Toro’s movies. I really do. I was originally on the fence about Crimson Peak, but it really is an amazing movie. Guillermo del Toro’s latest project is another original narrative. Starring Sally Hawkins in a lead role, the film looks to be another wonderful fantasy tale from del Toro. Is Hollywood sure it doesn’t want him back for the Hellboy reboot?
From master story teller Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER – an other-worldly fairy tale, 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) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forver when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.
