A FANTASTIC WOMAN
UNA MUJER FANTASTICA
2017, Sony Pictures Classics, 104 min, Chile/Germany/Spain/USA, Dir: Sebastian Lelio

Marina (Daniela Vega) is a young waitress and aspiring singer and Orlando (Francisco Reyes), 20 years older, owns a printing company. Both are very much in love. But after Marina rushes him to the emergency room one evening, Orlando dies, and suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. Marina is a trans woman; for most of Orlando's family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So Marina must battle the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now - a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman. “Shocking and enraging, funny and surreal, rapturous and restorative, this is a film of startling intensity and sinuous mood shifts wrapped in a rock-solid coherence of vision.” - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.
