It stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Octavia Spencer. Set in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, the film follows a mute cleaner at a high-security government laboratory who falls in love with a captured humanoid amphibian creature. Filming took place on location in Ontario, Canada, from August to November 2016. We discuss colour, water and take an interesting look at a variation on the classic three act structure. On the science side we discuss the history of deep sea exploration and diving that started in 1962.
