A Fantastic Woman

R, 104 minutes

Oscar winner for best foreign language film, A Fantastic Woman is a sublime tale of love, loss, and identity. It follows a transgender woman (Daniela Vega) after her lover’s untimely death, as she navigates prejudice and indignity with strength and self-control. (2017, Sebastián Lelio, Chilé, in Spanish with English subtitles, R, 106min, DCP)

“A Fantastic Woman is a brilliant film: a richly humane, moving study of someone keeping alive the memory and the fact of love.” — The Guardian

“Exquisitely compassionate portrait of a trans woman whose mourning for a lost lover is obstructed at every turn by individual and institutional prejudice” — Variety
