13th March - 14th March
At the height of the Cold War, in a secret US laboratory, lonely mute cleaner Elisa discovers a classified experiment in the government lab where she works – a mysterious, scaled creature living in a watertank. As she begins to communicate with the creature and the bond between them grows, so does the threat from the research team, headed by the vindictive Strickland. Guillermo del Toro intertwines classic 1950s B-movie sci-fi, horror and gothic romance to spellbinding effect, in a film about love, shape-shifting though it may be, and tolerance.
