Arts Pop: New film “The Shape of Water” is a complete original


ST. LOUIS, MO - Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be grabbing the movie headlines, but December is a busy, busy month for new film releases. St. Louis Post-Dispatch movie critic, Calvin Wilson, says one movie you absolutely shouldn’t miss is writer/director Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water.

The Shape of Water stars Sally Hawkins, Doug Jones, Octavia Spencer, and Richard Jenkins. The film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in early September, leads all Critics’ Choice Awards nominees with 14, and has seven nominations at the Golden Globes.

Wilson says that this film is completely original and that should make movie-goers very happy. Read more of his review in Sunday's A&E section of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
