Directed with the visual extravagance one expects from visionary director Guillermo del Toro, “The Shape of Water” explores a romance between two individuals rejected by conventional 1960s society. One is a mute cleaner who works in a top-secret government laboratory. The other is a humanoid amphibian creature held captive within the laboratory. The visually lush film earned critical acclaim for both its tender heart and its inventive dark fantasy world.
