THE LGBT Film SEASON – The Shape of Water
The Shape of Water
Guillermo del Toro | USA | 2017 | 123m | 15
An otherworldly fable set against the backdrop of 1960s Cold War era America. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works a mute cleaning lady (Sally Hawkins) befriends an otherworldly, aquatic creature who’s being held there against its will. In time, she and her friends decide to help it escape from captivity, even if it means risking the wrath of a ruthless G-man (Michael Shannon).
Whilst not an explicitly LGBT drama we chose ‘The Shape of Water’ as our LGBT film of the month as it’s a wonderfully moving film about outsiders finding a place and battling against conservative, destructive powers that try to silence them.
This screening is in association with D&G LGBT Plus and a reduced ticket rate is open to their members. For further details please call on 0800 020 9653 or click ‘Booking Info’.
