Abstract:

*Winner of the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Director of a Motion Picture*Visionary storyteller Guillermo del Toro and celebrated author Daniel Kraus combine their estimable talent in this haunting, heartbreaking audiobook. The Shape of Water is set in Cold War-era Baltimore at the Occam Aerospace Research Center, which has recently received its most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man captured in the Amazon. What unfolds is a stirring romance between the asset and one of the janitors on staff, a mute woman who uses sign language to communicate with the creature. Developed from the ground up as a bold two-tiered release--one story interpreted by two artists in the independent mediums of literature and film--The Shape of Water weaves together fantasy, horror, and romance to create a tale that is equally gripping on the big screen, and as an audio performance. Prepare for an experience unlike anything you've ever heard or seen. Praise for The Shape of Water directed by Guillermo del Toro"With encouragement from critics and awards voters, discerning viewers should make Fox Searchlight's December release the season's classiest date movie--for perhaps the greatest of The Shape of Water's many surprises is how extravagantly romantic it is ... It's as pure-hearted and simple a girl-meets-Amazonian-water-creature-who-might-just-be-a-god story as any ever made."--Variety"It is never less than magnificent."--The Daily Beast"A visually and emotionally ravishing fantasy that should find a welcome embrace from audiences starved for imaginative escape."--The Hollywood ReporterAwarded the Golden Lion for Best Film at the 74th Annual Venice International Film Festival.
