“An exquisite melodrama about the extremes of love and grief and familial conflict that also, when you're least expecting it, packs a hefty political wallop.” (The Times).

A FANTASTIC WOMAN (15) – 2017 Chile/Ger/Spa/USA 104 min – subtitled
Director: Sebastián Lelio
Stars: Daniela Vega, Francisco Reyes, Luis Gnecco
Marina (Vega) is introduced as she sings in a bar, serenading her older boyfriend Orlando (Reyes). But later that night a brutal twist of fortune means Orlando dies from an aneurysm. Though grieving, Marina faces a seemingly increasingly fraught and hopeless fight to assert her rights to hospital officials, police officers and members of Orlando’s disdainful family: sensitivity and understanding are not, it seems, their priorities. Exuberant and life-affirming, A Fantastic Woman is our second Foreign Language Oscar nominee of the month.
“Marina battles on, a force of nature, despite the elements gathered in opposition, and this big-hearted, sweepingly realised melodrama plays like an intoxicating tribute to that fighting spirit.” (The Big Issue).

“In this earnest expression of horror and fear, it's not just the nerves which are shot to pieces. There's much stiff upper lip talk of putting on a good show. And this very fine British film certainly does just that.” (Daily Mirror)
