In the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, eleven-year-old Ofelia comes to the countryside to live with her cruel stepfather, a soldier in the fascist army. In the nearby woods, she discovers the entry to an underground kingdom, where she encounters fairies, fauns, and monsters, and is charged with a dangerous mission. Kick off the spooky season with this spellbinding dark fantasy from Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), ahead of his forthcoming film, Nightmare Alley.
