The Shape of Water preview giveaway

From master story-teller Guillermo del Toro, The Shape Of Water is an other-worldly fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War era America in 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely mute Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. However her life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment – a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, del Toro casts an other-worldly spell, merging the pathos and thrills of the classic monster movie tradition with shadowy film noir, then stirring in the heat of a very unusual love story. Also starring Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones and Michael Stuhlbarg. MA15+ from Jan 18.
