The Shape of Water is a film that speaks not only to the outsiders and rebels, the freaks and the non-conformists. But to everyone who has felt out of place in an increasingly disruptive and disturbing world.
Guillermo del Toro‘s film – despite a love story between human and mutants (which may turn some people off) – provides a kind of cinematic comfort in a period of time and history circa.2018 where the order of things (nationalism, trade war and digital disruption etc) can be pretty scary and confusing at times.
For people confronting a world where the internet and new technologies are rendering jobs and skills useless.
For people who faces discrimination, assault and abuse.
For Everyday mom and dad who fear for a intolerant and in hospital future for their children.
For millennials and digital natives who can’t seem to grapple with the legacy of history to make the world a better place.
The Shape of Water is an ode to the bravely confronting our fears and to see love instead of hate, tolerance instead of discrimination, and hope instead of fear.
Have a great holiday ahead.
