Shipped and soon to arrive at the Nichols Library is The Shape of Water, this year’s winner of the Oscars for best picture and director (Guillermo del Toro). Eilisa (Sally Hawkins), a mute custodian working in a high-security government laboratory, discovers a humanoid amphibian that is the subject of a cold war experiment. The ensuing film is a ‘visually stunning” mix that is “part monster film, part romantic fable, and part Cold War thriller”. Other nominees on the way are I, Tonya, The Disaster Artist and Lady Bird.
