A lonely janitor, played Sally Hawkins, at a top-secret government facility befriends the amphibian-like creature being held captive by researchers. Also starring Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones and Michael Stuhlbarg. Winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro.

“Partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful.”

— The New York Times
