The Shape of Water (out Jan 18) is an "adult fairy tale" about a mute janitor (Sally Hawkins) who falls in love with a mysterious, human-like sea creature at a top-secret laboratory. The story between these two is worthy but some of the subplots (e.g. Richard Jenkins, Michael Shannon) didn't resonate as strongly. Grade: B+.
