A Monster Movie Explores Tolerance

Guillermo Del Toro’s new film The Shape of Water is about “acceptance and tolerance”.

The 53-year-old director is at the helm of the upcoming fantasy drama movie in which a mute girl named Elisa – played by Sally Hawkins – discovers an amphibious creature known as ‘The Asset’, with whom she eventually falls in love.

And the filmmaker has said that beneath its surface as a romance movie, the production serves as an “antidote” to the political climate of the world today.
