The Shape of Water
Directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Pacific Rim), the monster thriller The Shape of Water already got rave reviews and won Golden Lion award at Venice Film Festival. Based on del Toro’s previous work it should be at least visually interesting and original movie.

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.
