Sebastián Lelio ('Gloria') returns with a groundbreaking, deeply humane story about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance, anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega.
Vega plays Marina Vidal, a young singer whose life is thrown into turmoil following the sudden death of her partner, Orlando. Met with suspicion from the police and contempt from her lover’s relatives, Marina finds herself placed under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief. But faced with the threat of losing everything, Marina finds the strength to fight back.
From the producers of Jackie, Spotlight and Toni Erdmann, A Fantastic Woman is an outstanding, timely work that recalls the very best films of Pedro Almodóvar. Soaked in luminous visuals and elevated by elegant flights of surrealism, it is a courageous, audacious and defiant declaration of Marina’s status as a woman – and a fantastic one, at that.
