Chilean director Sebastián Lelio follows up his 2013 festival hit, Gloria, with another luminous and deeply involving portrait of an isolated woman. in A Fantastic Woman, Lelio has created an exquisitely compassionate portrait of the everyday obstacles of transgender existence.

Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Her partner, Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. When Orlando suffers a fatal aneurysm, Marina is suddenly treated with suspicion. By virtue of her gender identity she is treated like a criminal, with everyone from the doctors and Orlando’s family to the police seeing not a grieving woman, but an aberration.
