1. Shape of Water. This Guillermo Del Toro romance epic takes the myths of sirens, gender-swaps them and takes them to their logical conclusion. And yet, you find yourself rooting for the Swamp Thing, fish-monster hybrid and his lonely, signing lover.
2. A Quiet Place is another movie featuring a signing character, about a family trying to live in a world where they are hunted if they make a noise. That gets complicated when the mother is about to go into labour.
3. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Kissing Booth and Roxanne Roxanne. Two of these are teen romances and a rapper biopic. Maybe the world needs more love ...and hip hop.
