A FANTASTIC WOMAN

by Sebastián Lelio

Marina, a waitress and singer, and Orlando, an older man, are in love and planning for the future. After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight again to show them who she is.

Synopsis

Academy Award Winner - Best Foreign Language Film
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. The doctors and Orlando’s family don’t trust her. A woman detective investigates Marina to see if she was involved in his death. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. And to make matters worse, Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina 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, 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.
