A Fantastic Woman

Movie

The film is co-written by Gonzalo Maza, Lelio's co-scribe on his last three films. Chilean newcomer Daniela Vega, in her first starring role, plays a waitress, Marina, who moonlights as an aspiring nightclub singer. Marina and her partner Oscar (Francisco Reyes), 20 years older and a printing company owner, are in love and plan a future together. After an evening celebrating Marina's birthday, Oscar falls seriously ill; Marina rushes him to the hospital. But he dies just after arrival. Suddenly, Marina falls under suspicion. Doctors and Orlando's family don't trust her. His ex-wife bars her from the funeral; his son wants her thrown out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando's family, her sexual identity is an aberration, and the only way they think of Marina.
