The Shape of Water

Director Guillermo Del Toro is back in theaters this weekend with The Shape of Water. The film is set in Baltimore in 1962 and stars Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Shannon.

Sally Hawkins plays a mute custodian at a research center. Shannon’s Colonel Strickland discovers a strange humanoid creature in the rivers of South America that he brings into the lab. Hawkins’s Elisa befriends the creature, which leads to the rest of the movie.

This film can really came to life during a breakfast meeting in Toronto between del Toro and author Daniel Kraus. While the meeting as about a different project, Kraus shared and idea he had had in his head since childhood. That idea would become The Shape of Water with the screenplay largely written by del Toro and an accompanying novel largely written by Kraus,

iO9 writes that the novel tells much more of the story than the movie.

See Lady Bird at Hi-Pointe Backlot

Hi-Pointe Theatre is a hidden gem of St. Louis. The Hi-Pointe Backlot is even more so, hidden behind the main theater on McCausland Avenue. Hi-Pointe has been around since 1922 at the Southwest corner of Forest Park and below the world’s largest Amoco sign.

Hi-Pointe Backlot came on the scene in 2015 on the second floor of a building right behind the main theater. It took three years of rehab before the owners of Hi-Pointe spent 60 straight days putting the final touches on the space. The 48-seat theater has drawn stellar reviews from movie fans.

See Lady Bird this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.
