Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 4th at 4:20 for The Shape of Water at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Look for Brian A. wearing a brown sweater in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes The Shape of Water – an other-worldly fairy tale, 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. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
