In this outstanding and unforgettable Best Foreign Film Oscar winner, a trans woman attempts to pay her respects for her late boyfriend but faces staunch opposition from angry and ignorant family members.

 

Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina’s birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.

 

Critic Quotes:

“The title of Sebastián Lelio’s new film might seem a bit on the nose. It’s a fantastic movie. Daniela Vega, the star, is fantastic in it. Quote me in the ads, with exclamation points if you must. My work here is done.” – The New York Times

“A tremendous portrait of grief and prejudice.” – The Atlantic

“Marina’s dehumanization is gradually followed by her reclamation of her dignity. It’s a toe-tingling triumph.” – The Wrap

“It’s heartbreaking, illuminating, and yes, fantastic, just to watch her live.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Ravishing.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“To say that Vega is marvelous in her portrayal of Marina is nothing short of an understatement.” – Consequence of Sound
