And the winner was…

The Shape of Water

R | 2h 3min | 2017


Here’s what the teen audience had to say…

FINAL RATING: 6 out of 8 slices

Every PaaM night, we ask our teens to give us their honest reviews of the winning movie. We then select voices that capture the range of opinions and critiques. Read what Kayla, Michael, Ledwiska, and Daniel had to say about the Oscar winner.

Choose three words to describe the movie.

Kayla: Captivating, emotional, unique

Michael: Mystical, emotion, spectacular

Ledwiska: Interesting, unique, creative

Daniel: Incompatibility, humanity, defiance

What was your favorite scene? Bonus: Why? **SPOILER ALERT!**

Kayla: My favorite scene was when he kissed her at the end underwater and brought her back to life. I liked this scene because it was extremely emotional.

Michael: When she first starts to communicate with him because it shows her extreme love for him in a beautiful way. It shows how two people who can’t speak can still communicate with each other through pure love and emotion.

Ledwiska: My favorite scene was when the antagonist was murdered because he was a jerk for no reason at all.

Daniel: The first interaction between them. It shows the incompatibility between them, but also their connection. The setting of it contrasted the lab and water container, a symbol for their contrasting lives.

Would you recommend this to a friend? Why or why not?

Kayla: I would recommend this to a friend because I’ve never watched a movie like this and it is truly one of a kind.

Michael: Yes, because I think all people should see that love has no barriers or limits.

Ledwiska: Yes, I would recommend this movie to a friend because it was a different kind of movie. The concept was very intriguing and the movie was captivating.

Daniel: Yes, the cinematography was really cool and the whole aesthetic was pretty interesting. It was kind of graphic though, so I might give them a warning.
