FILM: The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water                          April 11, 2-4pm

At a top secret research facility in the 1960s, a lonely janitor forms a unique relationship with an amphibious creature that is being held in captivity. Marvelously rhapsodic in ways that recall films like Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast without ever seeming slavish. The Shape of Water (2018 Best Picture/Best Director) is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful. A.O. Scott NY Times, Nov. 30, 2017
Stars: 2018 Oscar nominees Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Richard Jenkins;          2h (R)
