A fairy­tale hor­ror story that’s also a re­sponse to Trump’s “Make Amer­ica Great” cam­paign, Guillermo del Toro’s lat­est has earned raves on the festival cir­cuit, where it’s been lauded as his best since

Pan’s Labyrinth. Sally Hawkins stars as the mute jan­i­tor at a re­search cen­tre, where she be­friends an am­phibi­ous hu­manoid (Doug Jones) who’s be­ing held cap­tive.
