The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro's (Pan's Labyrinth) latest film that he both wrote and directed, The Shape of Water is a dark fantasy drama about a mute janitor that gets a job at a secret government laboratory. While working there she meets the "asset," an amphibious creature not unlike the classic monster movie "The Creature from the Black Lagoon."

The janitor, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), and the asset (Doug Jones) fall in love, and upon learning the possible demise of her new love, Elisa fights to release the asset from the facility so they can be together.
