Michael Shannon, Sally Hawkins, and Octavia Spencer in The Shape of Water/Photo by Kerry Hayes, 20th Century Fox
Because a good friend* resisted seeing the BEST PICTURE (she didn't want to see a "monster movie" !) I tricked her and got her in to see The Shape of Water at Angelika Friday night when the house was sold out. (We sat in the handicapped section.)
So, on second go-round (when it was still great!), this is what I found:
1. Although remote controls were available, they were rarely found in households in 1962 and certainly not in dwellings or income brackets like Giles's.
2. A bathroom counter top matched my two-year-old granite counter top.
3. At the end in the water, one of Sally's shoes had come off and in a later scene it was back on her foot. (I doubt this is a prop mistake; a director's mistake?)
* She preferred Peter and the Starcatcher!
And that's all she wrote.
