About the Film
Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Screenplay, this is a richly imagined and exquisitely dark fantasy from acclaimed writer-director Guillermo del Toro. The film combines entrancing magical and realistic scenes which blend back and forth against the backdrop of war-torn Spain in 1940. A young girl seeks relief from the violence in her country’s civil war by entering a world of fairies, kings and demons where safety and salvation may be found. Critics have hailed Pan’s Labyrinth as the most powerful and unique film of the year.
