The Monday Night Film Series presents, 'The Shape of Water' on April 8 and 9, at 7:30 p.m. each evening in Tilley Hall, 102.

From master storyteller, Guillermo del Toro, comes 'The Shape of Water' - an other-worldly 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. Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Production Design and Best Original Music Score.

"Del Toro is a world-class film artist and he proves it in this Cold War romance about a mute cleaning lady (Sally Hawkins, unforgettable) who falls for an amphibious creature. Don't analyze how del Toro does it. Just dive in. There's magic in it." -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

This term, 15 limited release, independent foreign and Canadian films will be shown. Admission is $8/film, but a half-yearly $12 student film society membership reduces admission cost to $5/film. The series is open to all. Memberships are available at Tilley Hall, 102 every Monday night.
