Guillermo del Toro (PAN'S LABYRINTH) latest otherworldy fable is set against the backdrop of Cold War America, circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. 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.
Intertwining sci-fi, horror and gothic romance to spellbinding effect, del Toros singular vision is enhanced by Dan Laustsens (Crimson Peak) vivid cinematography and Alexandre Desplats hypnotic score, which runs the gamut from high-wire thrills to the stirringly romantic. Hawkins, always the most empathetic of actors, is a marvel and she ensures that Elisas fierce desire to fight for whats right never eclipses her sense of innocence. Love takes many shape-shifting forms and this intoxicating film is a pure celebration of tolerance and human connection.
