USA | 119 min | R | DCP | Dir. Guillermo del Toro "From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes THE SHAPE OF WATER, an otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment." (Fox Searchlight Pictures) "Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it's a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon." - Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times) All free events sponsored by WUD Film Committee are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
