Sally Hawkins’ mute cleaner falls in love with a strange fish-man be­ing (Doug Jones) and plots to free him from a top-se­cret US lab­o­ra­tory, circa 1962, in this deliri­ously strange but ut­terly en­chant­ing movie. Direc­tor Guillermo del Toro throws in splashy crea­ture fea­ture magic, fairy-tale won­der and Cold War para­noia, but it is Hawkins’ guile­less em­pa­thy that holds ev­ery­thing to­gether.
