A Fantastic Woman (15)

Director Sebastián Lelio. Drama


A FANTASTIC WOMAN is a Chilean drama in which a transgender woman struggles to adapt after the death of her boyfriend. Somewhere in Santiago at a dimly-lit nightclub, Orlando, the kindly and well-off owner of a textile company, locks eyes with Marina, a hopeful singer and the roughly half-his-age love of his life. But, unfortunately, after Marina's birthday celebration and a night of passion, Orlando falls gravely ill-and by the following morning he dies in hospital. In the wake of her companion's untimely death, Marina will soon realise that, from now on, everything is brought into question: her involvement in Orlando's death, their unconventional relationship; and above all, her right to mourn her beloved deceased.
