Winner of the 2018 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Sebastián Lelio (Gloria) returns with 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 Oscar-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 finds herself placed under intense scrutiny, with no regard for her privacy, or her grief. As tensions rise between Marina and Orlando’s family, she is evicted from their shared home and banned from attending his funeral. 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. ★★★★★ "An absolutely remarkable performance by Vega" - David Sexton, Evening Standard ★★★★★ "Funny, wry and inspiring" - Donald Clarke, Irish Times ★★★★★ "Heart-achingly moving" - Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro ★★★★★ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "Sublime study of love, loss and the trans experience" - Peter Bradshaw's Film of the Week, The Guardian
