Daniela Vega shines in a wonderful performance as a transgender nightclub singer, Marina, in love with Orlando, a successful businessman 20 years her senior. He has left his disapproving family to be with her, and they are planning a happy future together when Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, leaving Marina stunned and bereft. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, Marina is attacked and excluded, first from the authorities and then from his less-than-understanding family. Faced with flagrant disrespect and suspicion, Marina finds herself forced to fight not only to clear her name, but for the one thing she demands above all: respect.

By turns joyous and heart-wrenching, this acclaimed film is dynamite drama. Chilean director Sebastián Lelio treats his delicate subject material with the utmost care, creating an intimate character drama with real insight. With a magnetic performance from newcomer Vega—a transgender performer herself—A Fantastic Woman tells a powerful tale of grief, love, and dreams.

“To say that Vega is marvelous in her portrayal of Marina is nothing short of an understatement. She’s an inspiration to transgender and non-binary people across the globe, all while delivering the performance of a lifetime.”
