Sebastián Lelio (Gloria) returns with A Fantastic Woman – a groundbreaking, captivating and deeply humane story about a trans woman’s fight for acceptance.
Anchored by a powerhouse central performance from rising star Daniela Vega, this Academy Award-winning film is an urgent call for compassion towards a community that faces bigotry and hostility on a daily basis.
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 has to battle to find the strength to fight back.
From the producers of Jackie and Toni Erdmann, Lelio’s latest is an outstanding work, soaked in luminous visuals and elevated by elegant flights of surrealism, recalling the very best from Pedro Almodóvar.
