R. 2hr 3min CAST: Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, Octavia Spencer DIRECTOR: Guillermo del Toro CAPTIONED ON WEDNESDAYS

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER - an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and 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.

One of those movies that seems to imprint its gushing love affair with other movies-with the flickering euphoria of classic cinema-onto every image.
A.A. Dowd, AV Club
Blending '50s creature features, dark fairy tales and old-fashioned swooning romance, the latest film from writer-director Guillermo del Toro is pure movie magic.
Matthew Turner,
More than the scaly, expressive beauty of the creature, Sally Hawkins is the marvel here. Her flutter of sign-language and the sly wit and open ache of her eyes make her silence seem immaterial.
