Mexican director/writer Guillermo del Toro's work is very familiar to IFS customers. His latest film has won top honors at many prestigious film festivals and we are very excited to report that the IFS will be screening a Sneak Preview and Boulder Premiere of what many critics are hailing as his most impressive work to date: THE SHAPE OF WATER. It was one of the best films to screen at the last Telluride Film Festival. The description below was the TFF synopsis of the film:

Writer-director Guillermo del Toro and co-writer Vanessa Taylor transport us to an alternative reality: an amber-glowing Baltimore in 1962, the year before John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a timid lonely-heart mopping floors in a government lab, encounters a magical “asset” being studied and tortured by an obsessive federal agent (Michael Shannon, as always superb). The intensity of her connection to this “beast” changes her life. The brilliant ensemble includes Richard Jenkins, playing Elisa’s artist/neighbor with frustrated romantic longings; Octavia Spencer as her no-nonsense work buddy; and Michael Stuhlbarg; a scientist with mixed motives. In a work that shares the soulfulness of his fine PAN’S LABYRINTH, del Toro creates a richly detailed, wondrous world with designer Paul Austerberry and cinematographer Dan Laustsen, magically weaving elements of horror, fairy-tale romance, and sharp Cold War satire to unforgettable effect.
