A Lifechanging Experience
♦Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is out this December in the US and in February in the UK and recently the man himself and the film’s co-writer Vanessa Taylor spoke after a Director’s Guild of America event about the film, which is getting a lot of buzz, so here is that chat from The Movie Report…
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 forever 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.
