Guillermo del Toro’s latest feature The Shape of Water was just released in New York City last week and hits nationwide theaters this coming Friday, December 8th. I've seen and heard nothing but praise for this film and I'm very much looking forward to experiencing it for myself.
In this latest featurette for the film, del Toro discusses "an ancient force" and interspecies romance during the film's Cold War era. Watch it, enjoy it and let us know if you'll be seeing it in theaters this week!
From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER – an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. 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. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.
