Synopsis

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND – TWO DAYS ONLY

The Oscar winner for Best Picture of 2018, and Best Director (Guillermo del Toro), is back for a two-day run for those who missed it before the Academy Awards Ceremony.

The Shape of Water is a magical fairy tale about inclusion, and acceptance of “the other.” Set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962, the film centers around Elisa (Sally Hawkins), who works as a cleaning woman in a high-security government laboratory. Trapped in a life of isolation because she is mute and lonely, Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment in the form of a friendly sea monster, played by Doug Jones. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon as the evil boss, and Richard Jenkins as Elisa’s neighbor and co-conspirator.

Boston Globe

Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon.
