The synopsis for the film is as follows:
From master story teller Guillermo del Toro, comes an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forver when she and co-worker Zelda discover a secret classified experiment.
Normally I’m there no matter what for anything Guillermo del Toro does but I will still say that I think the trailer is really well done, though I can’t tell if one quick glimpse-image may spoil the film or what in regards to the antagonist. Having a mute protagonist is a refreshing choice in the current climate of big screen releases.
The film stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Doug Jones, Lauren Lee Smith, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, Nick Searcy and David Hewlett.
The film is scheduled for cinematic release on the 8th December 2017.
