THE SHAPE OF WATER is a fantasy drama in which a mute woman working in a research facility develops a relationship with an amphibious creature.

Violence

Scenes include gunfights and the implied severing of a man's fingers, with resultant bloody detail. In one sequence, a man probes a victim's gunshot wounds to interrogate him.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

Sex

Sequences include thrusting during intercourse and implied masturbation. There are occasional moderate sex references.

Nudity

There are occasional scenes of full frontal female nudity, including in a sexual context.

There are occasional scenes of moderate threat. Infrequent scenes of homophobic and racist behaviour also occur, but the work does not condone or endorse such attitudes.
