Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film 2018
By turns joyous and heart-wrenching, A Fantastic Woman is the spellbinding portrait of Marina, a trans woman who loses her lover in the film's opening sequence, and who subsequently encounters a stream of bigotry and abuse, first from the authorities and then from his surviving family. Marina finds herself having to fight for the basic recognition most of us take for granted.
"A delicate, moving study of grief, of quiet triumph over adversity, of adjusting to life’s empty spaces - and learning to fill them with love." Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
