The Shape of Water  
Its a tale as old as time.  Lonely woman meets handsome stranger and falls in love.  Sure the stranger is an abducted semi-amphibious fish-man being studied in a secret government lab.  An off-beat love story set in Cold War Baltimore, where mute Eliza (Sally Hawkings) falls for the captive Amphibian Man (Doug Jones).  So she works to free him from the brutal security chief Strickland (Michael Shannon), aided by her friends Zelda (Octavia Spencer) and Giles (Richard Jenkins) and scientist Hoffstetler (Michael Stuhlbarg).  Director Guillermo del Toro crafts a visual stunning romance mixed with elements of a spy thriller.
